Can you have 8.7i and 8.5i in ePo at the same time?

99% of our computers have 8.5i, while we're just starting to test 8.7i. I'd like to put 8.7i into ePo so i can set the policies for it via ePo. Can I do that since we're primarily 8.5i, which I can't mess up? If so, how do i add it properly? it doesn't say in the readme for 8.7i like i thought it would.

if you want the policies to copy across make sure to run the epopolicymigration.exe from the vse 8.7 install folder while logged into the server ( NB. there is NO GUI it just does it)

So running that migration exe after I put 8.7i into ePo will copy the settings I have setup for 8.5 and set them in the new 8.7 settings?

Also, how do you properly import 8.7 and all its reports into ePo 4?

You may need to load the EPO extensions for 8.7 before then.. you will also get the reporting functionality.

You load up the 8.7 software by checking in the package as per usual in EPO's repository.

ok, thanks. I'm still getting used to the new ways of doing things in version 4. I'll try adding both in, then running that migration exe.
