Article ID: 141557


Updated On:


CA Spectrum


We have migrated Spectrum from an older release to a newer release and we also want to move our older, saved, Locater searches.

How can this be done?


Spectrum  10.2.x, 10.3.x, Spectrum 10.4.x


1. Close out any OneClick clients by clicking on the X in the top right corner of your OneClick browser window.

2. Copy the custom search XML files as well as the custom-app-config.xml file to the new server from location $SPECROOT/custom/console/config  to the same location on the new server.

IMPORTANT:  Make sure to copy all files under $SPECROOT/custom/console/config to the new OneClick server in order to see the previous two saved searches in my below example

3. Verify the files, here is an example from $SPECROOT/custom/console/config

[[email protected] config]$ ls




4. Clear the Java cache on the OneClick client:

  1. Right-click on the Start button and select the Control Panel option.
  2. In the Windows Control Panel, click on Programs.
  3. Click on the Java icon to open the Java Control Panel.
  4. Under Temporary Internet Files click Settings
  5. Click Delete Files ... button to clear the Java cache

5. Relaunch the OneClick client from the new OneClick server,  OneClick Admin console, Start Console button.


Once OneClick is up and running, you should now be able to see your previous OneClick Locater searches on the new OneClick server
