FMS 12 to FMS 14 migration; porting for Schedules?

1. This KB talks about 11/12 to another machine:

 

Saving and loading schedules and groups | FileMaker

 

2. the fm14_getting_started.pdf (p. 67) says this:

 

Because of file encryption changes, you cannot load a FileMaker Server 12 Schedules and Groups settings file directly into FileMaker Server 14. If you want to retain the schedules and groups that you used in FileMaker Server 12, load your FileMaker Server 12 Schedules and Groups settings file into FileMaker Server 13, then save the information into a

FileMaker Server 13 Schedules and Groups settings file. A FileMaker Server 13 Schedules and Groups settings file can be loaded directly into FileMaker Server 14.

 

3. Client is going from FMS12 directly to FMS14 (windows). I have FM Dev lic for FMS13 (macintosh).

 

4. here are the questions!

     a. Can I get the saved schedule (FMS12, Windows), load onto my Machine (FMS13, Macintosh) and save to eventually load onto their FMS14 (windows)?

     b. does this only migrate schedules or do other settings come over?

 

p.s. yes we have FMPA14 to convert the databases, I'm trying to avoid screenshots to rely on rebuilding the FMS Admin settings.

 

Thanks!
