Sun Identity Manager 8.1 Upgrade

Step 5: Take a Snapshot

Make a copy of your existing configuration objects. Also, make a copy of other types of objects in the repository or copy at least a representative sampling of those objects.

The Identity Manager product upgrade saves the file system artifacts that it overlays, such as JSP files, but the upgrade does not preserve “before-images” of every object that it modifies in the repository. Taking a snapshot enables you to detect changes that the Identity Manager product upgrade makes to objects in the repository.
