Needing to migrate/upgrade NSM 3.02.76 from OES2 to OES11

Currently running on OES2 SP2a server. NSM version 3.0.2.76

Need to upgrade to new server. New server is OES11 SP1. Also would like to upgrade to latest NSM version.

Do I need to upgrade in place now and then move to new server? Can OES2 SP2a even run NSM 3.1?

Looked at documentation some, but don't see clear process on moving NSM to new server.
I didn't find any tips in the Discussion forum.
You've given me tips in the past and they have always worked great.

Can you point me to documentation and give best practices in making this upgrade and change.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

thanks,
Lin

Re: Needing to migrate/upgrade NSM 3.02.76 from OES2 to OES1

Linda,

You need to be on 64 bit:
Novell Doc: Novell Storage Manager 3.1.1 for eDirectory Installation Guide - Upgrading from Storage Manager 3.x to 3.1.1

Otherwise Is this what you are looking for:
Novell Doc: Novell Storage Manager 3.1.1 for eDirectory Installation Guide - Installing the NSM Engine

OES2SP2a has been out of development support since December 2011, so regardless if NSM would run on top of it or not, you do have a bit of catching up to do there.

For the benefit of others doing the same, I'd migrate then upgrade. Here's how I migrated Storage Manager Engine from OES2 to OES11:

1 - Unload old Engine and disable from starting on server boot.

2 - Install NSM Engine on new server, open firewall port 3009, and configure the engine using nsmengine-config, but don't start the engine.

3 - On the new server, rename /var/opt/novell/storagemanager/engine/data to data-original

4 - Copy /var/opt/novell/storagemanager/engine/data from old server to new server, then fire-up the new Engine

5 - Run NSMAdmin against the new server and next your way through the wizard. I had to create a new NSMProxy user, but you can use the existing NSMAdmins group.

6 - Reconfigure Event and Agent servers to point to the new Engine.

Regards,

Anthony
