IssueWhen customer exports Metadata from version IMG 6.9.1 and tries to import it to any older version,  like 6.8.1, the metadata won't be imported.  This error may be seen:
Import Failed:
No such field com.aveksa.server.export.ExportEntry.m_warnings ---- Debugging information ---- field : m_warnings class : com.aveksa.server.export.ExportEntry required-type : com.aveksa.server.export.ExportEntry converter-type : com.thoughtworks.xstream.converters.reflection.ReflectionConverter line number : 10 class[1] : java.util.ArrayList converter-type[1] : com.thoughtworks.xstream.converters.collections.CollectionConverter class[2] : com.aveksa.server.export.FileManifest version : null

As per the RSA_IMG_v6.9_Administrators_Guide page 82: 
" You can export system metadata from a particular version of RSA IMG and import the system
metadata into an equivalent version (6.8.1 to 6.8.1, 6.9 to 6.9, and so on). You cannot export and
import data between different versions of RSA IMG
Metadata imports are only supported in the same versions.
(Note:  This same guidance is noted in all versions of the IMG documentation, not just V6.9)
