EP6 to EP7 migration

I am proposing to migrate from EP6 SP2 to EP7 but I have been told that I first need to migrate to WAS 6.40.
Is this necessary?
My gut feel is to install EP7 and then just export all the portal objects I need from EP6 SP2 into EP7.
Patrick

Hi Patrick,
At a silicon valley client we did the later (your gut feeling) because the underlying was already on 6.40 SP12, and there was only a few iViews. You can migrate EP 6.0 SP2 straight to NW'04 SP16 which will take you to 6.40.
Supported Migration Paths;
EP 5.0 SP6 -> EP 6.0 on WebAS 6.40 SP14...SP16
or
EP 6.0 SP2 on WebAs 6.20 -> EP 6.0 on WebAS 6.40 SP14...SP16
All this information is contained on

  • How to migrate UWL from EP6 to EP7

    Hello,
    We want to migrate UWL from EP6 to EP7. Is enough task to transport the customize XML file that is located in UWL?
    Is it necessary to upload to EP7 the rest of attached documents? How?
    Thanks,
    Marta.

    Just install the same way you did originally.  Download/install the desktop application, sign in, install the subscription application(s).  You are allowed to have two working installations so you can keep the original intact if you like.  If you prefer not to then you should sign out of the old installation as a minimum.

  • Export Customized Information Attributes from EP6 to EP7

    Hi Everyone,
    Is it possible to migrate User Admin customized information fields from EP6 SP17 to 7 EhP1 SP7?  The standard portal user export functionality only collects the standard fields and ignores the custom attributes.
    Does anyone have an idea on how this task can be achieved???
    Thanks,

    No longer a requirement, thanks.

  • Accessing SQL Server jar for EP6 SP19/EP7 SP11

    Hi,
    I have application that accesses SQL Server and used to run in old portals (SP under 13) but doesn't run under new portals.
    This is the driver I use:
    <i>com.sap.portals.jdbc.sqlserver.SQLServerDriver</i>
    I tried to include the following jars under the 'lib' folder - didn't help
    P9base.jar, P9sqlserver.jar, P9util.jar
    I get  "[SAP_Portals][SQLServer JDBC Driver]This driver is locked for use with embedded applications".
    What jar/driver do I need to use in order to run applications that access SQL server in the new portals.
    p.s
    I don't want to define connection in VA. I want to use DIRECT connection.
    Thanks,
    Omri

    Solved it on my own.

  • EP6 NW04 on 32 bit upgrade to EP7 on 64 bit

    Hi,
    We want to move from EP6 NW04 on 32-bit Windows/Oracle to EP7 on 64 bit Windows/Oracle. Our choices are:
    - system copy to new 64 bit hardware and then upgrade.
    - upgrade on 32 bit then system copy to new 64 bit hardware.
    - install EP7 on the new 64 bit hardware and transport the content from EP6.
    What is considered best practice? What would be the main reasons for choosing fresh installs over the copy/upgrade? Any comments welcome...
    Also, is a system copy from 32-bit to 64-bit considered heterogeneous?
    And lastly.. is it possible to use the "XML Content & Actions" method for copying transport from EP6 to EP7?
    Many thanks in advance.
    Regards
    Jane

    Is there an advantage to doing a system copy rather a simple export/import of the PCD?

  • EP7 TeamViewer updating EP6 par files

    EP7
    ESS/MSS 600
    ECC6
    Is this possible?
    How can I get my EP7 WebDynpro Employee Search updating my EP6 par files?

    Hi Samuli,
      thx for your reply.  Unfortunately this note does not relate to my issue ... perhaps I should have explained a little more clearly.
      We are currently upgrading from EP6 to EP7.  So we have a bunch of EP6 par file iViews that we are still going to use.  Some of those iViews will need to be mixed in with the EP7 WebDynpro iViews.  Once of these combinations uses the EP7 WebDynpro Employee Search/Teamviewer and an EP6 par file iView.  How do I get these pieces to talk to one another?
    thx
