    ***Please note: While this may be effective for you in a particular situation with a particular exported query, please note this is not and cannot be supported by LANDESK. In addition please be aware that this workaround does not work 100% of the time.

    When you try to import a query from a different version of LDMS than what you are currently in, you will recieve the following error:


    Items were rejected because of a version mismatch error.  The first 3 numbers in this assembly version ( do not match the items' (

    Failed to import: query.ldms




    When you export a query, the LANDESK console embeds the version number of the console in the query.


    Solution/ Workaround:

    Open the exported .LDMS file in a text editor, and look for lines containing a string similar to the following:


    Change all instances of the version number to your console version number.


      • 9.0 sp3/4
      • 9.5    

    Note**: You can find these version numbers in your "Help > About LANDESK > More info" menu in the console.
