Post-migration tasks 

After migrating to IBM Connections 3.0.1, you need to perform further tasks to ensure that your new deployment is complete.


Before you begin

Ensure that you have successfully migrated to IBM Connections 3.0.1 and that you have completed any required post-installation tasks.


About this task

To finalize the migration process...


Procedure

  1. Re-apply any proxy configurations, if necessary. For more information, see the Configure the AJAX proxy and Configure a reverse caching proxy topics.

  2. If you changed the root URL of any feature, and if the old and new URLs point to the same webserver, redirect requests to the new URL:

    1. Open the httpd.conf file in a text editor. The file is located in the ibm_http_server_root/conf directory.

    2. Uncomment the following line:

        LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so

    3. Add the following statements:

        Note: This example redirects all requests to the pre-migration URL of https://blog25.example.com/weblogs/* to the post-migration URL of https://blog30.example.com/newblogs/*. Substitute your own URLs as appropriate.

        RewriteEngine on

        RewriteRule /weblogs/(.*) https://blog30.example.com/newblogs/$1 [R,L]

        Listen 0.0.0.0:443

        <VirtualHost *:443>

        RewriteEngine on

        RewriteRule /weblogs/(.*) https://blog30.example.com/newblogs/$1 [R,L]

        ServerName blog30.example.com

        SSLEnable

        </VirtualHost>

        SSLDisable

  3. Delete your pre-migration search indexes and create new indexes.

      For more information, see the Delete the Search index and Create an initial or new Search index topics.

  4. If you scheduled Activities jobs in version 2.5, complete the task to schedule Activities jobs in release 3.0.1. For more information, see the Manage the scheduler topic.

  5. Optional: Remove the Location and ErrorDocument stanzas if you added them to the httpd.conf file before migrating. For more information, see the Preparing IBM Connections for maintenance topic.

  6. Optional: If you used IBM Connections Connectors in version 2.5, such as Lotus Quickr and Confluence, re-install them.

  7. Optional: If you defined a server whitelist in version 2.5 for publishing file attachments from Activities to Lotus Quickr, re-define it after migration.

  8. Re-apply the customizations that you specified in version 2.5. For more information, see the Saving your customizations topic.

  9. Synchronize the member database tables for each IBM Connections application with the data in the user directory. For more information, see the Synchronize the application member tables and corporate directory topic.

      Note: You must have a webserver configured for IBM Connections before attempting to synchronize Profiles and the LDAP directory.

      Synchronize the application member tables and corporate directory
      Before using the product, be sure to synchronize the member database tables for each IBM Connections application with the data in the user directory.
