Migrating JDBC GUID Files From IDM 4.6 to IDM 4.72

Jump to solution

Hi, I'm migrating a JDBC driver from IDM 4.6 on serverA, Driverset A,  to IDM 4.72 on serverB, Driverset B.

Can I just copy the /state/guid files over in this scenario?

Thanks

Nevermind...

"When you move your driver to a new server, the process includes creating a new driver object on the new server. The newly created driver object will have its own GUID. Therefore, copying the state files of the old driver to the new server does not work even if the driver versions are same (or have the same state file extensions). In order to prevent resynchronization, ensure that Triggerless Publication Legal Values 2 (process future changes only) option is set in the driver properties"

Is that really the case, that it gets a new GUID?  The object GUID is per tree, not per replica.  I assumed that the state files are named by the object GUID not some replica specific value.

 

So I expect one of those is incorrect.

The quote was from

https://www.netiq.com/documentation/identity-manager-47-drivers/pdfdoc/jdbc/jdbc.pdf 

In my case it is a new guid as the driverset is different.

In the past however I had copied the config and state files from one server to another using the same driverset and IDM version with no issues. So yes, the referenced statement need clarification.
