Migrating Manager runs on Linux

After successfully upgrading the Gateway Server, the Manager runs must be updated on the Gateway Server. When you upgrade Gateway Server on a UNIX/Linux computer, you have the option to migrate your Manager runs from an earlier version to the upgraded version.

If you plan on migrating your Manager runs, do not select Uninstall existing version on the Configure Gateway Server Migration page of the installation wizard. 

The scripts used to migrate the runs require that the earlier product version be installed and available. You can remove the earlier version of the Gateway Server after migrating the Manager runs.

Note

When you upgrade Gateway Server on a Windows computer, Manager runs are automatically migrated from the earlier version to the upgraded version and the earlier console version is uninstalled from the computer. No further action is required 

Scenarios for migrating the Manager runs on Linux

    ENTER A NUMBER [1..3] followed by <Enter> key ? 1 
  2. Select the Manager runs you want to migrate from the older version to latest version of the Gateway Server by entering one of the following:
    • The number against the Manager run (as mentioned in the sample output in the preceding step)

    • The ALL option (to migrate all Manager runs)

      Note

      If you had performed the Gateway Server upgrade as a non-root user, execute b1configvvvv.sh (b1config1070.sh) as a root user to complete the upgrade process.
