APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • With the DMGR's use of the OTIS database, an embedded Derby
    database, for job management, Migration will fail if that
    database is not stopped prior to migration.  One should be able
    to have DMGR Migration continue with only a warning about the
    database when one sets -requireEmbeddedDBMigration false in
    migration. But instead DMGR Migration fails.
    

Local fix

  • Stop the DMGR before running the DMGR migration.  This will
    insure the relevant derby database is not up during migration,
    thus preventing an error arising that stops the migration
    process.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere z/OS Migration   *
    *                  Management Tool V8.5 and V9.0               *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Migration fails due to problems         *
    *                      migrating Derby database, which         *
    *                      cannot be skipped.                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    If the migration fails in the PreUpgrade stage due to an
    embedded Derby database not being able to migrate, and the
    user is not aware of or does not require the embedded database
    to be migrated to their new environment, they may want to
    specify the -requireEmbeddedDBMigration false property for
    WASPreUpgrade. However, the z/OS Migration Management Tool
    does not surface this option as a setting in the wizard, so
    they are unable to specify it.
