Portal V6.1.x on application server V7: Migrate a remote search server

If the source portal environment uses a remote search server, update the remote search server to work with the current portal environment.

  1. Update IBM WebSphere Application Server on the remote search server to the supported version.

    To avoid port conflicts, ensure that the earlier installed version of WAS is up and running. Then install the current version of WAS to a different directory. After installation, check that both the earlier version and the newer version are running, and then continue configuring the remote server. For more information, see Use remote search service.

  2. On the migrated portal, re-create the search collections for use with the updated remote search server.
