21.0 Migrating Existing Novell Vibe Data into a New Vibe 3.1 System

If your existing Novell Vibe 3 system has outgrown the server where you originally set it up, or if you want to move to a different operating system, you can install Vibe 3.1 on a new server, then migrate your existing Vibe data from a previous version to your new Vibe 3.1 system. This is especially helpful if you created your Vibe system by using the Virtual Eval version of the Novell Vibe Starter Pack.

You might also want to migrate an existing Vibe 3 system to a Vibe 3.1 system on another server.

If you are migrating from a Teaming 2.1 server, follow the instructions in “Update” in the Novell Vibe OnPrem 3 Installation Guide.

NOTE:In these instructions, “target server” refers to the server where you install the Vibe 3.1 software, and “source server” refers to the existing server from which you are migrating Vibe data.

The instructions in this section are based on a single-server Vibe configuration. If you have a multi-server Vibe configuration, the single-server instructions can serve as a foundation to get you started with your more complex migration process.

This section does not include instructions for migrating an Oracle database. Use the instructions for your Vibe platform as a guideline for the tasks that are involved in migrating Vibe data, then apply these guidelines to your Oracle database migration.
