Issue/Introduction

We are planning migration to Azure or Amazon AWS. How will we proceed to migrate Clarity there? 

 

Environment

Release : Any

Component : CA PPM INTEGRATIONS & INSTALLATIONS

Resolution

1. Stop and remove services on source env

2. Zip the Clarity filesystem

3. Zip Java and Tomcat

4. Move to the new server and extract to the correct folders

5. Ensure the environmental variables are set correctly for JAVA_HOME/NIKU_HOME/PATH on the new server

6. Open the properties.xml and ensure the installDir  java home and home (for Tomcat) is set to the right paths 

7. Check the hostnames to ensure they are correct for entryUrl sslEntryUrl schedulerUrl

8. Ensure the database URL and connection details are updated

9. Make sure the ports used are open on this server

10. Save and restart the services

11. Now access the Clarity application and CSA directly and ensure they work

 

 Note: If any LB / proxy etc required, involve the IT team for their migration.
