(5) WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment 7.0 software cannot be upgraded to version WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment 8.5.5 in the traditional sense. Therefore, all WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment 7.0 applications must be migrated to a newly installed WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment 8.5.5 server.
Refer to the IBM support site and WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment 8.5 product documentation for information on migrating applications from WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment 7.0 to WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment 8.5.5:

(8) Download the IBM Maximo Reconfiguration Tool for Administrative Workstations and update any properties in the ibm\smp\etc\install.properties file that might have changed when you installed WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment 8.5.5 and IBM DB2 10.5. For example, if you installed WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment 8.5.5 on a different system than the WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment 7.0 host, you must update the WAS.DeploymentManagerHostName property with the new host name.
