 +<note important>​It is no longer possible to start the upgraded server and have older, yet unupgraded proxies report data to a newer server. This approach, which was never recommended nor supported by Zabbix, now is officially disabled, as the server will ignore data from unupgraded proxies. For more information,​ see the [[:​manual/​installation/​upgrade|upgrade procedure]].</​note>​

 +Warnings about using incompatible Zabbix daemon versions are logged.
  
-Zabbix 2.4 proxies may only be used with Zabbix 2.4 server. They will not work with 2.2 or older Zabbix server.

 <note important>​In Zabbix 1.8 XML export format, trigger dependencies are stored by name only. If there are several triggers with the same name (for example, having different severities and expressions) that have a dependency defined between them, it is not possible to import them. Such dependencies must be manually removed from the XML file and re-added after import.</​note>​ <note important>​In Zabbix 1.8 XML export format, trigger dependencies are stored by name only.
