    Upgrading MQM 6.1 to 7 - config migration query


      Hi folks,


      Just a quick question. I've come across a contradiction in the documentation for upgrading from Quarantine Manager Version 6 patch 1 to version 7 which I'd like to get clarified before going ahead with the upgrade.


      https://kc.mcafee.com/resources/sites/MCAFEE/content/live/PRODUCT_DOCUMENTATION/ 23000/PD23456/en_US/mqm_701_ReleaseNotes.pdf


      In the release notes above it says the following:

      Seamless Auto migration from McAfee Quarantine Manager version 5.0 Patch 2 or 6.0 Patch 1 to version 7.0, using the McAfee Quarantine Manager installer.


      https://kc.mcafee.com/resources/sites/MCAFEE/content/live/PRODUCT_DOCUMENTATION/ 23000/PD23170/en_US/mqm700-pg.pdf


      But in the installation document above (on page 17) it says:

      Upgrading will migrate only the database. All existing configurations such as, scheduled tasks, config push interval, IP address settings for each domain and so on will be lost. Hence, reconfigure the product after the upgrade.



      So my question is; will using the version 7 installer automatically import the configuration that is already in place in version 6.1?


      If not, can I just copy the content of the 'configs' folder over to the new installation from the old one? Or will I have to reconfigure from scratch?


      Any help appreciated!
