There is once a time that I was tasked to downgrade vxvm from 5.0 to 4.1,  after the downgrade, all dgs are unable to import with some invalid configuration.  After gone through all the relevant document, I couldn't fnd any references. After open a case with symantec, I got the finial confirmation this is not supported and data backup & restore must follow the downgrade of binary vxvm software.
