Can different versions of Active Roles be installed on the same Active Directory managed domain, and function correctly?
Example: Active Roles 7.1, and 7.4.3 in the same domain.
Different versions of Active Roles are not supported in the same Active Directory domain. Different versions of Active Roles Servers in the same domain will cause issues with Dynamic Groups, Policies, Workflows, Custom Scripts, and this can lead to undesirable conflicts in product functionality.
It is recommended when upgrading Active Roles to a later version to upgrade all servers running Active Roles components to the same version and patch level to be in a supported configuration.
Note: The only exception is during an upgrade from 6.9 to 7.x. In this scenario, the upgrade is a side-by-side installation however; this is only meant to be temporary and may impact the environment as the 7.x may be duplicating tasks. For more information see the Active Roles Quick Start Guide for detailed information.
