This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi all,

Is it possible to run OpsCenter 7.5 with Master Servers running 7.1?

We're having this issue - but can't upgrade NBU to 7.5 yet?

Are there any known issues or things to look out for in this scenario?

Ops Center and Master server should be at the same version

in your case

master server 7,1

so ops  center must be 7.1

what patch are you using for master server 7.1

 Ops Center 7.5 will work with NB ,

after upgrading to Ops center 7.5 , u can generate the tabular reports

, two other methods for generating report

OpsCenter 7.5 will certainly work with NBU 7.5, 7.1, 7.0.

Even NBU 6.5 with an additional agent installation.

The Tabular report issue was resolved in OpsCenter 7.5 and you should upgrade when available.

The only caviat is that the OpsCenter host, must be AT or HIGHER then the master server version.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Thanks for the info Tom.

Is there any benefit going to latest patch version of OpsCenter - 7.5.0.x? Or should the base level 7.5 suffice.

inn-kam - thanks for the info, it was very helpful.

There are multiple problems in the 7.5 release that affect the validity of report options and output, data collection from the master server, OpsCenter database permissions for making changes to reports from prior OpsCenter version, etc. 

Absolutely upgrade to OpsCenter
