Oracle iPlanet Web Server 7.0.9 Installation and Migration Guide

Migrating Using the Graphical Interface

The following procedure describes how to migrate server instances using the graphical interface. There are two distinct phases to the migration process. You first migrate data from a 6.0 or 6.1 instance to create a Web Server 7.0 configuration, and then deploy that configuration on a node to create a Web Server 7.0 instance.

Note –

For detailed information about these and other tasks performed using the Administration Server console, see the Oracle iPlanet Web Server 7.0.9 Administrator’s Guide.

ProcedureTo Migrate Using the Graphical Interface

  1. Access the Administration Server console and click the Configurations tab.

  2. In the Configuration Tasks table on the resulting Tasks screen, click Migrate Configuration.

    The Migrate Instances Wizard displays.

  3. In the wizard:

    1. Supply the absolute path to the installation directory of the 6.0 or 6.1 Web Server you want to migrate, then click Next.

    2. The Instances selection screen appears.

    This wizard creates a configuration in the config-store directory of the Web Server 7.0 Administration Server. You will then use this configuration to create a server instance, as described in the following steps.

    Note –

    Before creating the instance from the migrated configuration, it is imperative that you review the migration log file and fix any issues. For information about accessing the migration log, see Viewing the Migration Log File.

  4. In the Configuration Tasks table on the Tasks screen, click New Instance.

    The New Instance Wizard displays.

  5. In the wizard:

    1. Select the configuration you migrated and click Next.

    2. Select the nodes on which to create an instance of the configuration and click Next.

      Note –

      If you want to migrate to another host than while creating an instance select the remote node.

    3. Verify the information on the summary page and click Finish.

  6. Start the migrated server and ensure that the server is working properly.
