I understand that vicfg-cfgbackup only supports backup / restore operations within the exact same build of ESX.
I have now a situation where I might have to restore a v 5.5 config onto a v6 server (which I guess I can "force" via the -f option). My question is simple: although this is not a supported action what are my odds ? it is a fairly basic config, nothing fancy. Is there a reasonable chance for this to work ? What I am looking for is "real life" experience...
(the whole question is about avoiding a 1200km roundtrip to the actual server room...)
