We want the following to be migrated from 6.1 environment to the new 8.2.2 environment - IS, broker, SAP adpater
Please suggest the way to go which of the below options are fine:
Option 1: “6.1 to 8.2.2” side by side
Option 2: “6.1 to 7.1.3” side by side and then “7.1.3 to 8.2.2” over-install
Option 3: “6.1 to 7.1.2” side by side, “7.1.2 to 7.1.3” over-install and then “7.1.3 to 8.2.2” over-install
Please feel free suggest a better option not listed above
Could you suggest when should I go for Over-install? What should I confirm so as to go for Over-install for any upgrades?
Another question on “migration utility” vs “deployer”
I understand that the recommended way to go is via ‘migration utility’ but can I use Deployer for this migration?
Could you please suggest on - When should I use Deployer vs when to use Migration Utility?
Could you please suggest if we can use the Deployer on 6.1 to migrate packages from 6.1 to 8.2.2 directly?
If some of the services are found to be deprecated in later versions of webMethods. Does Migration utility fixes this or prompts us to correct this? I want to understand how would Migration Utility behave in this scenario.
Please provide your valuable inputs.
