Airwave upgrade from 126.96.36.199 to 8.0 export/import
07-07-2014 09:21 AM
Does anyone have any experience with exporting devices and VisualRF data accross servers?
I am undergoing an upgrade of airwave. We have new hardware to run 8.0 on but I am trying to figure out the best upgrade option. I am considering exporting a device list and all the maps (with AP locations) instead of upgrading through all of the jump versions to get to 8.0. Also we have 4 servers so this would be quite the process.
Any other thoughts?

As for the Visual RF plans, export then import into new server, preferably AFTER the steps below:
How to get devices from the old (7.x) server into the new (8.0) server? Use the article here: https://arubanetworkskb.secure.force.com/pkb/articles/FAQ/Exporting-a-list-of-devices-with-credentials-from-an-AirWave-database-to-an-AirWave-importable-CSV to export devices in the proper format.
With the CSV that is created login to your 8.x server using https://<ip address of 8.x server>/ap_create_csv_uploader and import the CSV file created from the previous step into there. Caveat: All devices will be uploaded to the same folder
