Can I migrate existing properties to MMC?
The simple answer to this question is "Yes." But, you need to take some things into consideration before you do.
Only the most recent version of a property has Mixed Mode
As is the case with any property in Property Manager, once you edit it, a new version is created. Only this new version of the property will have the MMC updates included. We highly recommend that you only promote any updates to a property to the Staging network and thoroughly test it before pushing to Production.
You can always migrate back to an earlier "working" version of your property, if you run into problems.
Verify your origin set up
This may seem simple, but if you plan to incorporate live and video on demand (VoD) media in the same property, ensure that you have the Origin Server set up properly in the applicable rules.
- VoD media. In Segmented Media Delivery Mode, set Mode to On Demand and in Origin Server, set Origin Type to Your Origin or NetStorage. (With the Origin Characteristics behavior set accordingly)
- Live media. In Segmented Media Delivery Mode, set Mode to Live and in Origin Server, set Origin Type to Media Services Live or Your Origin. (With the Origin Characteristics behavior set accordingly)
