How can I migrate AAI and/or the AAI database to new servers?


Release : 6.4.2



If AAI is moving to a new server, but the database server is staying the same.

1. Install the same version of AAI on the new server.

2. Before starting the service copy over the .jawskey file from the JAWS_HOME/jboss/standalone/configuration directory the existing AAI server to the new server.

3. If using an Oracle database, make sure to copy over the ojdbc8.jar file to the new server as documented here.

4. Shutdown AAI on the old server.

5. Open the AAI configuration tool on the new server, and verify the database connection settings are correct and verify that a test database connection is successful.

6. Start up the AAI service.



If AAI is remaining on the same server, but the database is moving to a new server.

1. Shutdown AAI before database migration.

2. After database migration, open the configuration tool and update the new database connection details to reflect the updated database server, port, user, etc.
