Use these worksheets to record important information as you prepare to migrate your source system data to vRealize Automation. You can reference the information in the worksheets during the migration process.

Source System Data Worksheet for Migration

Record information about the source vCloud Automation Center 5.2 system.

Migration to vRealize Automation 6.2 requires that the source system be at vCloud Automation Center 5.2.3 and the target system be at vRealize Automation 6.2 or a later 6.2.x version.

Use only ASCII characters in the migration tool text boxes. The only non-ASCII character that the migration tool recognizes is the period.

Table 1. Source System Data Worksheet for Migration

Entity Type or Description

Your Deployment Name/Location/Value

Additional Information

Model Manager Web Service FQDN and Port

The default port is 443.

If you use a port number other than 443, you must manually update a required database table after you have finished running the pre-migration task and before you start running the migration task. For details, see Update Migration Table to Parse Port Value Data.

Model Manager Web Service administrator user name and password credentials

Record the Windows service account credentials that IIS requires to run the application pool.

SQL server name

SQL database name

You replace the target database with the source database prior to running migration. Record the source database name.

Credentials for Domain or SQL authentication to SQL database

You must restore the source system database over the target system database as part of the migration process. Verify that you have access rights to perform this operation.

Encryption key or passphrase for SQL database

The migration tool prompts you for this information and provides a link to the Retrieve the Database Encryption Key topic.

Distributed Execution Manager Workers

Distributed Execution Manager Orchestrators

The Distributed Execution Managers (DEMs) and Distributed Execution Workers names that you specify when installing vRealize Automation must exactly match the names you used in the source system.

To find these names, select vCAC Admin > Distributed Execution Status. See Migrating DEM and Agent Information.

Agents

The Agent and Proxy Agent names that you specify when installing vRealize Automation must exactly match the names you used in the source system.

To find these names, select Enterprise Admin > Compute Resources. If necessary, right-click a compute resource host name and select View Proxy Agent. See Migrating DEM and Agent Information.

Endpoints

To find these names, select vCAC Admin > Endpoints.

Customizations

The migration process deletes customizations. Record all of the customization work that you did in the source system. Recreate customizations after migration.

Snapshots and backups

Record the name and description of each snapshot and backup you create so that you can restore your environment to that configuration if necessary.

Target System Data Worksheet for Migration

Record information about the target vRealize Automation system.

Use only ASCII characters in the migration tool text boxes. The only non-ASCII character that the migration tool recognizes is the period.

Table 2. Target System Data Worksheet for Migration

Entity Type or Description

Your Deployment Name/Location/Value

Additional Information

Model Manager Web Service FQDN and Port
