Incorrect steps to migrate Performance Center

CA Performance Management - Usage and Administration


I need to migrate the Performance Center server, but when I follow the documentation some steps seem to be incorrect. The link I'm following is this:

I have RHEL 7.4, but I can't find this in the /etc/init.d folder *(neither the caperfcenter_services)

If I do not copy this, when I'm trying to add the mysql service (chkconfig --add mysql) I see a message: error reading information on service mysql: No such file or directory


Incorrect steps in the Performance Management guide.


Release : 20.2

Component : IM Reporting / Admin / Configuration


Copy the Files from the Existing System: Step 11. Copy the MySQL startup script:
On the source server, there is no /etc/init.d/mysql file (RHEL 7.x doesn't use init.d).
You have to copy the /etc/systemd/system/mysql.service file instead. 
Then run: systemctl daemon-reload

Configuring the New System: Step 5. Migrating to a RHEL 7.x system:
Running "chkconfig --add mysql" returns "error reading information on service mysql: No such file or directory"
No need to perform this step, skip it.

To enable the mysql daemon, run the following syntax:
systemctl enable mysql
