    Hi,

    Is it possible to export and import policies from different MX with different version? Or is it required that they should be the same model and firmware version? example: from x2010 v11.5.0.92  to  M160 v14.3.0.10

    Thank you.

    Thanks for the question, Oliver.

    I have connected with our experts and unfortunately we have not supported v.11.5 since June 2019. 

    Support team can assist you with upgrade validation of MX v.11.5 to  any currently supported version, the procedure converts all policies from old version to new one. For upgrade validation request please open case to On-Prem Support.

    Thanks,

    Hi Sarah,

    Thank you for the response.

    Just for clarification, is this means that there is no way to export the POLICY ONLY from the old x2010 v11.5.0.92 and then import to M160 v14.3.0.10?

    Thank you.

    Oliver,
    You can export policies and import them elsewhere using the action button, but all the back-end pieces need to exist in the new system, such as followed actions, site tree, lookup tables, etc.  After import you will need to setup these components.  You can also export the Site Tree, reports, and many other items, but again, you will need to ensure the backend pieces exist.  This is not version dependent and usually take a lot of work to make this work smoothly, but it is possible.
