Issue/Introduction

We are moving the TDM portal to a new location need to deal with the  Stored DB Connection information.
We do not want to have to set up all of the database connections again and update all of our projects and configuration to point to these new database profiles.

 

Cause

Moving TDM portal to new location

Environment

TDM Portal 4.8.x 4.9.x, 4.10.x

Component : CA Test Data Manager

Resolution

You are moving the TDM database and Portal to a new location.
This may require a change to connection information for the DB connection profiles in your current configurations.

You were concerned that you would need to reset up all of the new connection profiles and point all of your environments and setups to these new DB Connection profiles.

The process you should follow is to EDIT the existing DB connection profiles to allow the connection as needed, IE Change the IP address or DNS name needed for the connection to continue to work.

Once this is done anything that uses that DB Connection profile will use the new information once a process is started. 

No further change should be required for all of the existing setups in this way.
