Convert package to older ESM

Jump to solution

Hello!

Is there any official or unofficial tool to convert arb packages to older versions of ESM? For example package was made on ESM 6.8 and I want to install it on Express 4.0.

Or any documentation of what is the difference in resources in arb.

Thanks in advance.

Aleks

Well, packages incompatibility may occur even from older versions to a newest version, like 5.5 -> 6.5.

Especially if you have broken resources. In this case I had to do the same manual work by excluding offending resources from the package. The Package Manager is not smart enough and it easily produces packages that contain incomplete or broken resources.

Hi Aleksandr,

ArcSight Express 4.0 is based on version ESM 6.0.

Have you tried to install the package? Maybe it is working

What kind of error do you see if you have already tried?

.

HP ArcSight Support has tool to migrate from ESM v5.X to ESM v6.X, I advice you to ask them directly if there is a tool that can help you.

Thanks

Kind Regards

Michael

Hi Michael,

I tried to ask this question support team, they proposed Proff Service.

Now I do this by triyng to import package to Express, see what error occures, then open xml file from arb package, delete lines which was in error and again try to import..

This is not very convenient.

Not easy way to do that.

However you could try to parse the xml manually and then create a new xml for Express.

Unzip the arb package and open the xml file.
