Migrating CPPM From 5.2 to 6.2

Hi ,

 

Our end customer is having cluster set up of CPPM which is running at 5.2 version. ( Publisher and Subscriber )

 

Presently the end customer wants to migrate the subcriber from 5.2 to 6.2.

 

So wanna know how to do that , following are the my queries.

 

1. Publisher will be on 5.2 version so if i add new VM which will be running on 6.2 version as a subscriber will all the configuration will be reflected on 6.2 ?

 

2. Whether i can take the backup from subscriber which running on 5.2 version and then putting that backup file on 6.2 and then adding the 6.2 as subscriber whether it will work ?

 

3. Have to do the configuration from scratch ?

 

Kindly suggest me how can i do the migration.

 

Regards,

Nithin Kumar C V

In a cluster you cannot run two different versions. You will have to either break the cluster and run them separately or upgrade both servers.

Thank You,
Troy

In our case publisher is appliance and subscriber is VM.

 

We have created another VM which is running on 6.2 so can i upload the configuration back up from appliance which is publisher running on 5.2 and putting this VM into production and then taking the migration of OS on appliance offline so that it will not effect the production network.

Just make sure you also back up your certs to keep a backup.

 

You will need to work with TAC to migrate any lic. 

 

When you restore make sure you go in and double check your settings after migration. You will need to re-enable insight.

Thank You,
Troy

Re: Migrating CPPM From 5.2 to 6.2

We got the confirmation from TAC that license has been tranferred from 5.2 to 6.2 and they sent the cerfication Ids also.

 

Its a cluster set up so all the configuration will be same on both publisher and subscriber.

 

So have to take the backup of configuration  from publisher rite ?

Re: Migrating CPPM From 5.2 to 6.2

One more clarification.

 

now the Host name, IP address  for new VM is different .

 

How much it will effect if i install the backup file on new VM.

Re: Migrating CPPM From 5.2 to 6.2

The backup will restore everything except ip and host name. Its been awhile since I've done a 5.2 migration but I don't think it will restore the certificate also. You will need to also add that afterwards. make sure you have the password
