Error description

  • The WebSphere Application Server migration job BBOMDINS contains
    instructions (copied below) refering to a python script named
    install_all_apps.py.  But, that script will not be found as it
    has been replaced in WAS v9 by the new migration tool called
    WASMigrationAppInstaller.sh, which has enhanced capabilities for
    deploying apps after a migration in a smarter manner.
    
    "
    Note: If you selected to deploy the applications by
    script, you can use the following generated script to
    deploy your applications to the new environment. The
    script also contains further instructions about
    deploying applications.
    
    /was80/migrate/17150110/dmgr_backup/install_all_apps.jy
    "
    

Local fix

  • Use WASMigrationAppInstaller.sh instead.  Refer to the WAS
    Knowledge Center for more information:
