DCRUM Migration - software service (application.xml) conversion to new/updated version support

Dynatrace Pro
Dynatrace Pro

There are instructions for converting the software services/application.xml to the HS AMD format.

I have 2 questions:

What is the earliest version supported for the conversion? Can I take an application.xml file from a 12.2 AMD, use this process and have a 12.4.12 HS AMD formatted file?

Does this process work for non-HS AMDs? Can I take a 12.2 file, use this process and have a 12.4.12 Classic AMD formatted file?

1. The step 9 in the procedure is to run the upgrade command on the old applications.xml before the actual conversion.

[root@amdprobe/]# appxml-tools upgrade -olddef=/usr/adlex/config/applications.xml.defaults.upgradesave

We support the upgrade two releases backward, so if you're migrating to 12.4.12 HS AMD, appxml-tools should deal just fine with your 12.2 configuration.

2. apmxl-tools is also available and has the same syntax on Classic AMD, so the upgrade command should work on Classic AMD as well.

Super - exactly what I was hoping for.
