Use the asupgrade utility to replicate the configuration of a previously installed server in the target installation. The Upgrade tool assists in upgrading the configuration, applications, and certificate data from an Application Server 8.x/9 installation to Application Server 9.1. If the domain contains information about a deployed application and the installed application components do not agree with the configuration information, the configuration is migrated as is without any attempt to reconfigure the incorrect configurations.
The Upgrade Tool migrates the configuration, deployed applications, and certificate databases from an earlier version of the Application Server to the current version. The Upgrade Tool does not upgrade the binaries of the Application Server. The installer is responsible for upgrading the binaries. Database migrations or conversions are also beyond the scope of this upgrade process.
If you issue the asupgrade command with no options, the Upgrade Tool GUI will be displayed. To run the Upgrade tool in CLI mode, invoke the asupgrade command with the -c/--console option. If the asupgrade command is used in command-line mode and all of the required information is not supplied, an interviewer will request information for any required options that were omitted.
