5.10 won't be an option because 5.10 wasn't out at that time.  Just choose highest version available.  No, you can't see other db name from epo for other server.  You can find that out from other server by going to core/config.

Re: Migrate systems from 5.9.1 to 5.10

I'm a little bit confused about couple options when i tried to add 5.10 as a registered server into 5.9.1.

- Policy sharing : All the policies have been migrated to 5.10 from 5.9.1 do i still need to Enable this ?

- Client task sharing : What happens if i keep Disable it ?

- Transfer systems : By default it's Disabled, Should i keep it like that ?

Also when i test the connection , i got "Database connection successful. Warning Versions mismatch." Is it gonna cause any issue ?

I have attached a screenshot for the reference..EPO_registered.PNG

Policy and task sharing is not needed if you are exporting/importing policies and tasks.  Sharing is not the same thing, which you probably don't want.  Version mismatch you can ignore.  Transfer systems you need enabled if you want to move systems to that server.

It imports a sitelist from the other epo server automatically that contains typically only the epo server.  if you want systems to get full sitelist or the import fails for any reason, you can grab the sitelist.xml file from other server in the install dir in root of db folder and import it manually.  The sitelist is needed for the clients to know where to transfer to.  If transferring systems, you also need to export the communication keys from old server and import into new so the new server will be able to negotiate the communication.

So, if i enable Transfer systems and choose Automatic sitelist import , do i need to do anything else to import the agent-server key to do the transfer ?
