2. Install WebSphere Application Server Version 8.0. Read the "Installing the product and additional software" article in the information center for more information. 3. Use the Profile Management tool or the manageprofiles command to create a WebSphere Application Server Application Server Version 8.0 profile. Read the "Creating profiles using the graphical user interface" article or the "manageprofiles command" article in the information center for more information. 4. Run the WASPreUpgrade command, specifying the migration backup directory name and the existing WebSphere Application Server Application Server directory name. Read “WASPreUpgrade command” on page 26 for more information. The WASPreUpgrade tool saves selected files from the /bin directory to a backup directory you specify on a wizard panel. Migration saves files from the following directories to the backup directory: – classes – config – installableApps – installedApps (or an alternate directory specified by the user) – properties 5. Run the WASPostUpgrade command, specifying the migration backup directory. Read “WASPostUpgrade command” on page 29 for more information. The WASPostUpgrade tool copies the environment in the backup directory to the WebSphere Application Server Application Server Version 8.0 stand-alone application server installation. Note: When migrating a stand-alone application server from Version 6.x or 7.x to Version 8.0, you can choose a stand-alone application server node that has already been registered with an administrative agent as the target of the migration. Migrating to a Version 8.0 stand-alone application server on a remote machine Use the migration tools to migrate from a Version 6.x to a Version 8.0 stand-alone application server on a remote machine. 36 Migrating, coexisting, and interoperating
Before you begin Read “Overview of migration, coexistence, and interoperability” on page 1 and “Premigration considerations” on page 5. Typically, you can use the WASPreUpgrade and the WASPostUpgrade migration tools to upgrade from Version 6.x to Version 8.0 on the same machine. However, some scenarios require that you migrate the Version 6.x configuration on one machine to Version 8.0 on a different machine. One of these scenarios is when you install new machines for your Version 8.0 environment but need to migrate your existing Version 6.x configuration from other machines. To ensure that your operating system is supported by WebSphere Application Server Version 8.0, visit the following site for the most current list of supported hardware and software: WebSphere Application Server system requirements. If you find that your operating system is not supported for migration to Version 8.0, read “Migrating stand-alone application servers from unsupported operating systems” on page 38. The WASPreUpgrade command saves the existing Version 6.x configuration into a migration-specific backup directory. The WASPostUpgrade command uses this directory to add the old configuration settings to the new Version 8.0 environment.
