Before you migrate the vRealize Orchestrator server from your vRealize Automation 7.x source environment to vRealize Automation 7.3, you must run the commands in this procedure to export the configuration of the embedded source vRealize Orchestrator.

Prerequisites

  • For a minimal deployment, log in using SSH to the source vRealize Automation appliance as root.

  • For a high-availability deployment, log in using SSH to the master source vRealize Automation appliance as root.

Procedure

  1. Copy the vRealize Orchestrator migration tool from the target vRealize Automation 7.3 environment to the source vRealize Automation 7.x appliance. Before you run the command, replace TARGET-VRA-APPLIANCE-HOST-NAME with the fully qualified domain name of the target vRealize Automation appliance host.
    scp root@TARGET-VRA-APPLIANCE-HOST-NAME:/var/lib/vco/downloads/migration-tool.zip /storage
  2. Extract the migration tool on vRealize Automation source appliance
    unzip /storage/migration-tool.zip -d /var/lib/vco
  3. Run the migration tool.
    /var/lib/vco/migration-cli/bin/vro-migrate.sh export

    The migration tool creates a file: /var/lib/vco/orchestrator-config-export-localhost-DATE-AND-TIMESTAMP.zip

    Note:

    You can safely ignore a SLF4J error message when you run this command.

  4. Copy the generated export zip file to /tmp/vro-config.zip for later use.
    mv /var/lib/vco/orchestrator-config-export-localhost-DATE-AND-TIMESTAMP.zip /tmp/vro-config.zip

What to do next
