Backwards Compatibility Mode (BCM) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is this only availble if an upgrade from 07 to 2010 is performed?
    I see it is greyed out from a fresh install of PS 2010.
    Thought others might like to know from MS folks what the functionality will be [BCM] for upgrading and fresh installs.

  • Yes rjones67, it is only available for an upgraded 07 to 10 system.  But nothing to stop you creating a new PWA instance in 07, then taking the clean databases and upgrading them to 2010 if you want to use BCM on a clean system.  I can understand some customers wanting to do this if they are consolidating on a single server, and not starting with an existing 07 dataset, but don't have all their clients upgraded to 2010 yet.

    Remember though that there is no way back after going from BCM to native mode - so make sure you are ready before flicking the switch.

    Best regards,
