Win2012 is not supported by that version of BSA. Sorry but you will need to upgrade for the compliance to work.
What is customized about your environment that you think you cannot upgrade ?
Thanks for update Scott and Bill. Scott agree we have to upgrade but as mentioned can't do immediately.
Bill, We have n number of scripts for Application release which have huge dependencies so we need to test that before upgrade.
Can we do Export of Compliance content for CIS win2k12 from 8.5 to 8.1 ? I tried to import but it gives the below error, same when we try in 8.3 it works.
The specified zip file is not a valid content package. Unable to proceed with import.
Possible cause: the zip file was not exported using BladeLogic's version-neutral export system.
Well, we don’t support 2012 in 8.1 – the 8.1 rscd is not supported on 2012. So it’s not just a matter of content.
What ‘huge dependencies’ are there? on bladelogic functionality or something else ?
8.1 is out of support. i would consider upgrading.
Thanks again for quick response. We are running bl for relase and
deployemnts which has all automated packging, deployemnt, etc and
integration/custized with scm tools. Also we just migrated our env from
7.6 to 8.1 which just went live so need some time to stablize before next
Regards to agent support ...cant we install 8.5 rscd agent on win2k12
servers as we have only few win 2k12 servers as of now and may not use BL
on those except CIS n patching .
We are looking for any solution till we start our upgrade planning and
Sure – you can install the 8.5 agent but we don’t test downlevel appservers w/ newer rscd versions. and 8.1 does not support 2012 so there would be no way to patch the servers.
