Thank you,

I know this and other documents, where XCS 5.1x is supported, but no word about XCS 5.031 - neither if it is supported or it is not. Maybe someone has tested the Combination and has some experiences with it.

Generally speaking, Command View is backwards compatible with VCS and XCS.

The problem comes in when you have a newer VCS or XCS and an older Command View version.

I am almost positive that CV 6.x will work with XCS 5.031, but will look into it a little and see if I can find anything that states otherwise.

The doc that Luk links basically shows the currently supported versions of of VCS/XCS, not the versions inbetween that "should" be upgraded (as you have seen).

In otherwords, HP wants you to upgrade to 5.1x, or 6.x if you are running 5.0xx to be in a "supported" configuration.

Yes, I think the same way, all the non-supported and unstable versions have been taken out from the compatibility matrix. As far as I remember 5.031 was an interim version which was taken out of support very fast.

Hi,
I believe that XCS 5.031 is upgrade only with Cmd View V6.xxx so I guess the answer would be no.
Your next stop would be V5.100 for cmd view V6.xxx. If yu wish to stop with XCS V5.031 then I believe that V5.0.3 is the maximum.
