Migrating a policy
If maintenance or a new release of Z Common Data Provider requires additional or different information in the policy files, you must migrate the policies by using the Z Common Data Provider Configuration Tool before you restart Z Common Data Provider. Each policy should only be migrated when the maintenance or new release is applied to the LPAR (or LPARs).
About this task
After you install the PTF and start the Configuration Tool, the MIGRATE ALL POLICIES TO THE LATEST FORMAT button appears, and a migrate button and a warning icon appears on each box of the policy that needs migration.
Depending on how you want to migrate the policies, complete one of the following steps:
- To migrate all policies, click the MIGRATE ALL POLICIES TO THE LATEST FORMAT button.
- To migrate a specific policy, click the migrate button in the lower-left of each policy box.
If a policy is migrated, the warning icon and the migrate button disappear from its policy box. If all policies are migrated, the MIGRATE ALL POLICIES TO THE LATEST FORMAT button disappears.
