Remote Journalling between non-similar VxRx levels? Published by: Bob Cozzi on 24 Oct 2011 view comments(1)

Is it practical to expect to do remote journalling between two system that are NOT at the same release level? Folks here are saying it is not. But here's the situation:

We have several sites:

Site ID Server Model Release Level Backup Server Model Backup Server RelLvl
01 810 v5.2 810 v5.4
02 170 v5.2 520 v5.4
03 170 v5.2 520 v5.4
04 810 v5.2 720 v7.1
05 810 v5.4 720 v7.1

Do I need to get the backup servers on the same release level as the production systems? I know this would be desirable but is it strictly necessary?

Next year we're moving to all new model 710 Express units with v7.x on them, but for now, we need backup/recover capabilities nearly "live".

Can't seem to find anything, anywhere, regarding release to release compatibility of remote journals. The only thing I could find regarding requirements was Supported communications protocols for remote journals, and that not much (mostly about the RDB directory entries).
