Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server V9.0 migration scripts               *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Migration fails if the old cell         *
    *                      being migrated has not been converted   *
    *                      to the new security model.              *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    A version 9.0 Deployment Manager cannot support federated
    nodes which are older that version 7.0 in a mixed cell
    environemnt.  Therefore, version 9.0 migration assumes that
    the cell has been converted to the newer configuration model
    introduced in version 6.0.2.  However, it appears that once
    the old cell had completed migration to a v7.0 environment the
    "convertScriptCompatibility" was never run - thus the version
    7.0 cell was still running with a v6.0.1 configuration model.
    Therefore, we need to provide away for version 9.0 migration
    to handle the conversion of the old model to the new model.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Provide a system property that allows the Version 9.0
    migration code to handle the conversion of the config model.
    In reality this conversion should take place prior to
    migrating to version 9.0 using the convertScriptCompatibility
    script.  However, some have requested this be support during a
    migration.
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 9.0.0.8.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
