When carrying out a VCM promote, only the parent of the source view can be selected. Is it possible to promote to the grandparent?


While this is not possible using the promote VCM operation, the contents of a grandchild view can be promoted to the grandparent by using the VCM replicate operation.

1. Open the grandchild (source) view 
2. Click View | Compare Merge


3. Choose Replicate
4. Click Next

5. Choose a configuration.(In most cases current configuration should be used)
6. Click next

7. Choose the grandparent view (target)
8. Click finish
