Forward an old Version of SC to a PROD-Track


I am trying to forward an old (already assembled and approved) version of our SC to one of our PROD systems.

The CMS denies the forwarding with the following message:

Forward canceled

Reason: The version(s) you want to forward are lower than the system state version(s) and are already imported in the target track

My question is in a productive scenario, where no bugfix would help in an appropriate time, is it possible to roll back to an older existing version for a PROD-Track? Can this be done by the CMS or is the only possibility over the saved SCA file and the deploy tool directly?

Thanks & Regards,

    There is a tool to reset the system state so that you can import it even if its lower. I have used it several times with success.

    Its called CMS support tool and it should be installed on the machine you are running the NWDI on.

    The following url works for me.
