We have a deployment of Autodesk Vault Pro 2013, with many 2012 CAD and Vault clients. Will applying the SP1 on the server for 2013 break connectivity with 2012 clients? Should I also install 2012 SP2?
Is this a supported scenario?
I couldn't find any notes regarding this on the current documentation.
Thanks in advance,
Thanks.I'll also check this on my test environment, hopefully it is as you say. I find it odd that it's not documented somewhere.
It will definitely connect and most things *should* work, but the relevant configuration that was tested prior to release of the service packs involved 2012 SP2 clients working with a 2013 SP1 server. And since "supported" means "tested", if you do have any issues the first thing product support is likely to ask you to do is to install the 2012 SP2 on the clients.
Therefore, I recommend that you deploy the 2012 SP2 to the clients reasonably soon after installing the 2013 SP1 on the server.
