When migrating from a Service Assurance Manager pre-9.1 installation to a Service Assurance Manager 9.1 installation, you must manually merge any modified business-related rules files with the same files in the 9.1 installation. File merging when migrating from a pre-9.1 installation to an 9.1 installation identifies the files to be merged.
In the figure, the top two files are relevant to Business Impact Manager operation, and the bottom three files are relevant to Global Manager operation.
If you have not modified any of these files in the pre-9.1 installation from which you are migrating, you do not need to merge the older versions of the files in the pre-9.1 installation with the newer versions of the files in the 9.1 installation.
To merge a pre-9.1 business-related rules file with the 9.1 rules file:
Use an editor application with a file-comparison capability to open both the pre-9.1 file and the 9.1 file.
Perform a comparison of the pre-9.1 file with the 9.1 file to identify your modifications.
Add your modifications to the 9.1 file. You can copy text from the pre-9.1 file and copy it into the 9.1 file.
Close the pre-9.1 file without saving the file.
Save and close the 9.1 (and modified) file to the /local subdirectory identified in File merging when migrating from a pre-9.1 installation to an 9.1 installation.
