Is there a way to export / import host previously discovered in DPA

Hello

to fit to may company requirements, i need to forget previously DPA 6.2 environement aand to start a new one from scratch, last 6.3 version.

I have a plan to uninstall 6.2 on both application and datastore servers then install 6.3 (same host dns and ip address)

I have already done such way on a testing environment. I found and tested how to export then import custom reports.

Now, my question is about hosts with agent, how to get back them at the new configuration without playing with the "discovery wizard" ? Is there a way to export from preious DPA database ? Or is there a way to mass define them ?

Regards.

Hi T_Navetat,

DPA DS Import and Export works only with same dpa version build and patch level.

You can not Export dpa ds db from earlier version, Build and Patch level.

Because there is some differences in dpa 6.2.2 and 6.3 binaries as there is all patched and Enhancements added in newer version of DPA 6.3.
