v8 and v10 Agent Backwards Compatibility?

  • 1.  v8 and v10 Agent Backwards Compatibility?

    We're going from v8 to v10 coming up and in looking at the system requirements doc, under the "1.9.1 Platform Agent" section, I'm finding that a few older OS versions are dropped in favor newer ones.

    This is awesome for my growing Server 2012 fleet, but not such good news for the handful of older HP/UX (11.00 - 11.23) and AIX (5.3) boxes that just won't go away. While I'd love to use the upgrade as a reason to get rid of these boxes, I don't think it will be a strong enough argument.

    So, until the older systems go away is the older v8 agent functionally compatible with the v10 system?

    Hello Mark,

    I have several v8 and v9 agents running on a v10 system with no problems.

    Older Agents are for V10 officially supported for V9 and V8 (its always 2 Versions backwards compatible).

    Please keep in mind that new functions of V10 may not work with using V8 Agents.

    We recommend updating to the latest available Agent version in V8 - if running V8 Agents.
