Note: You cannot change applications during the migration process. For example, you can only migrate Nessus on Tenable Appliance to an instance of Tenable Core + Nessus.

The backup and restore and remote synchronization methods include steps to downgrade Tenable Core to your Tenable Appliance application version in order to complete the migration. For more information, see Perform a Backup and Restore Migration and Perform an Rsync Migration.
