2.5 Product documentation: Migrating, coexisting, and interoperating
Migrating is the copying of a WebSphere Application Server configuration from a previous release of a product into a new release. Coexisting is running a new release of WebSphere Application Server on the same machine at the same time as you run an earlier release.Or, running two installations of the same release of WebSphere Application Server on the same machine at the same time. Interoperating is exchanging data between two different systems, such as coexisting product installations. The following infocenter link covers all aspects of migration, coexistence, and interoperability. http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/wasinfo/v7r0/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.web sphere.nd.multiplatform.doc/info/ae/ae/welc6topmigrating.html Also this link has pointers to all the essential information for migration such as migrating product configuration, migrating Web server configuration, migrating administrative scripts, etc.

2.6 IBM Education Assistant: WebSphere Application Server V7.0 - installation and migration
IBM Education Assistant is a collection of multimedia educational modules designed to help us gain a better understanding of IBM software products. The following IBM Education Assistant link speaks about installation and migration of WebSphere Application Server V7.0. http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/ieduasst/v1r1m0/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm. iea.was_v7/was/7.0/InstallationAndMigration.html

2.7 Get support from IBM
We can use the following channels to get support and assistance from IBM.

2.7.1 IBM WebSphere Developer Services
IBM WebSphere Developer Services provides developer-to-developer technical assistance to IBM Business Partners while developing applications or building solutions involving IBM WebSphere products. If we require any assistance, we can raise a ticket called problem management record (PMR). A PMR can be raised from the following URL, http://www.ibm.com/isv/tech/remoteEmail/entryForm.jsp

2.8 WebSphere education
WebSphere education helps us to build and enhance our WebSphere skills. It has more than 250 courses across the WebSphere Software portfolio and SOA. It provides flexible classroom, online, and private courses. The courses are designed by award winning instructors with first-hand product knowledge. The role-based training path in WebSphere education assists us by defining a path to acquiring skills for specific WebSphere product offerings. Check out the following link to view a list of WebSphere education offerings. http://www-01.ibm.com/software/websphere/education/

2.9 Migration to WebSphere Application Server for z/OS
WebSphere Application Server for z/OS V7.0 is the latest offering from IBM for the z/OS application server product. IBM is providing a set of utilities to migrate existing configurations to the WebSphere Application Server for z/OS V7.0 level. Migration involves running a utility job against a configuration. That utility will copy from the existing configuration file system, transform and modify the configuration as required by WebSphere Application Server V7.0, and place the results into a new file system.

2.9.1 Knowledge collection: Migration planning for WebSphere Application Server for z/OS
This web page has a consolidated list of resources under one heading to plan and perform WebSphere Application Server V7.0 for z/OS migration. http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=180&uid=swg27010819

The basic idea is to migrate the configuration to an intermediate profile. Requiring all applications on that node ready for migration at the same time is not practical and is a project management challenge. These migration tools work for many cases but is too limiting for all customer scenarios. © Copyright IBM Corp. This profile will not be used in any final deployed solution but is used to extract portions of the configuration as desired to move to a profile that will be a final deployed solution. the complete cell is migrated. Two components are used to provide this capability: The Runtime Migration Tools support Properties-based Configuration The existing runtime Migration tools support converting configuration from older versions of WebSphere Application Server. This technique combines the capability of the runtime Migration tools to merge a given configuration from previous WebSphere Application Server versions with the capability of Properties-based Configuration to extract meaningful portions of configuration that can be imported to another profile. V6. Migrating portions of the configuration at a time This document describes a technique to migrate portions of a configuration from an existing WebSphere Application Server V5. For DMgr migrations. 2010. however it does not provide fine grained support for just portions of the configuration. in many cases there may be a large number of applications on a node.

Important: Changes were made in WebSphere Application Server V7.0. 3. This enables us to export and import all or portions of a profile on the target WebSphere Application Server image using property files. A zOS solution will be slightly different in the initial steps and this will be addressed in section 3.9 to make the Properties-based Configuration generated property files more portable.1.1.
