VXMake: import of diskgroup failling between 2 different versions of VxVM

Dear,

 

I'm trying to vxmake replicated (using BCV from EMC) diskgroups.

 

On the source system, vxvm is at version 6.0.1 with a FS layout 7.
The target is running VxVM 5.1SP1RP2 so the FS layout v7 should be alright.

During the import process, a vxmake is issues but it's complaining about these things:

VxVM vxmake ERROR V-5-1-327 variable name not recognized, context:

        thin=off      

        thinreclaim=off

May I safely remove these variable from the text file used for the import?

 

Thanks in advance for your help and advises.

What is the diskgroup version on the dg?
vxdg -q list <diskgroup> | grep version 

Higher dg version cannot be imported on lower version of SF.

VxVM 6.0 creates diskgroup version 170. 
SF 5.1 supports dg version up to 160.
