Issue/Introduction

Just installed web client 12.1 and need to copy all of the host and views data from 11.3.4 to the 12.1   Can't find the old 11.3.4 file. 

Environment

Release : 12.1

Component : CA WORKLOAD AUTOMATION CA 7 UI

Resolution

Install/apache-tomcat-8.5.61/WebClientConfig/config.properties
This file simply contains the host and port information that will appear in
the drop down list when a user logs on to the CAL2JCL(AL2QSRVR) member (aka
CA7SRVR).  So basically it points to the one or more CA7SRVR host/ports you have
running.

AL2QSRVR has a DD name CA7PROF that points to the VSAM file that contains the
1) Defined instance information
2) User Profile Information
3) User custom view information
4) Global custom view information

Two options
1) Have both 11.3.4 and 12.1 use the same CA7SRVR information.  Cut and 
   paste the 11.3.4 config.properties data into the 12.1 file.  This way
   both releases will have access to the same CA7PROF VSAM file
2) Have separate CA7SRVRs and use IDCAMS to copy the CA7PROF VSAM data set you
   have for 11.3.4
