Where do I find the OES 2018 sp2 migration tool?

I need to migrate a SLES 11 SP4 / OES 2015 SP1 server to OES 2018 SP2.  I want to keep the same functionality so I need the OES migration tool to migrate the ID and the data from the old to new server.  Apparently the OES Migration tool will do that but I can't find it anywhere on the Web.  It is not in my Microfocus Customer Center, I can't find it on download.microfocus.com or on the beta downloads.

Where do I find it to download it?

Thanks,

dan

This is not an "external" tool as it's been for NetWare. It comes with the new (with any new) box.

a possibility?

boot your Server with the oes2018sp2-dvd and install it as update

I have updata my oes2018 Server sp1 at this way

I have use the same method to update sles12sp4 to sles12sp5

When you don't want to do this:

install a new Server with oes2018sp2 and migrate only the data

For a number of reasons, i don't want the baggage of the old server during the upgrade.  I think I am better off migrating to a new VM.  It seems like the migration tool will allow me to migrate to a different VM but keep the same identity of the old VM and end up with a fresh OES 2018 SP2 install.

I found OES2018 SP2 on the Customer Center.  I can't find the migration tool.  The docs don't say that it comes with the OES 2018 SP2 DVD.  If it does, what is its name so I can search for it?  If it is somewhere else on the Web, then where is it?

After installing, miggui is available for migrations from old to new server or swap-id's if that is what you are looking for. migguis is not for in-place upgrades.

The program name is 'miggui' and is installed as part of the OES installation on the pre-migration server.  Go to a console prompt and type 'miggui'.

FWIW,

It's installed WITH the server OS itself. Call "miggui" from a shell.
