The version of MDB used by ITCM r12 is 1.5 and the version of MDB used by USRD/CMDB r11.2 is 1.0.4. This does not allow SQL bridge configuration.


To resolve this, upgrade the USRD/CMDB MDB from version 1.0.4 to 1.5.

Run the ITCM r12 installer on USRD/CMDB MDB server and click choose the "Install MDB" setup option which will upgrade the MDB and create the 'ca_itrm' database user.

Note: Make sure to enable the 'Compatibility Mode' option which would install all tables and just not DSM tables for compatibility with other CA products.

Select * from mdb_version
