Migrate data in a sharded deployment

During incremental configurations of IBM® Sterling Order Management System Software, the Configuration Deployment Tool (CDT) migrates configuration data. The CDT contains sharding options for migrating colonies of enterprises.

About this task

Because of business needs, enterprises that have independent deployments may want to move one deployment to a higher version of Sterling Order Management System Software sooner than the others. A sharded deployment enables this capability.

If you are migrating data in a sharded deployment, IBM recommends following this sequence of tasks:


  1. Move HUB and Organization Driven data first.
  2. If an enterprise inherits any rules, pipelines, or user exit implementations from another enterprise, move the parent enterprise or its DEFAULT colony first.
  3. Move the child enterprise.
  4. Move Master data for the migrating enterprise.
