During the vRealize Automation pre-migration and migration tasks, the Model Manager Web Service must remain online in the source and target systems.

Problem

The source or target Model Manager Web Service is offline during pre-migration or migration. The source and target Model Manager Web Services must remain online while the migration tool is running.

Cause

If the Model Manager Web Service is not running, start the service by using the IIS Manager or by running the net start w3svc command.

Procedure

  1. Open a console window and enter the net start w3svc command.
  2. Enter the fully qualified domain name in the Host name text box, for example myhost62.mydomain.com.
  3. Enter the port number for the target vRealize Automation host in the Port text box. The default value is 443.
  4. Enter the Model Manager Web Service administrator user name and password.
  5. Click Next.

Results

When the source and target Model Manager Web Services are running, you can start the migration tool and run the pre-migration or migration task, as necessary.
