IssueMigrate RADIUS data from AM6.1 to AM7.1 SP2 with the patchRemoteAdmin tool 
ResolutionGet the AM6.1 RADIUS Export Utility

This gives additional details on Creating the RADIUS Migration package file, as part of the migration documents.  The migration utility must be installed on a system with the AM6.1 Windows Administration GUI. If the RSA RADIUS Server is on UNIX, this requires a Windows-based Remote Administration tool. The migration utility TEMPORARILY REPLACES the RADIUS Administration tool.


Note: if using the RSA Appliance 2.x, this procedure may not work directly on the appliance.  If this happens, install the Authentication Manager Remote Administration tool on a 32-bit Win2000, WinXP or Win2003 system, patch the RA to the same level as the RSA Server in your appliance, and continue with this procedure on the Remote Administration system.


Get the utility from the installation media from:


root_directory/client/util      In this example I have copied the files to a local drive, for the installation. Please note the formatting shown is for the standard output of a command line, and was not reformatted:

You can now run the utility to create the RADIUS migration package.
do the following now:
-- Log on to the Remote Administration client
-- click RADIUS menu and select Manage RADIUS server menu option
-- click export to start the export process


Once the RADIUS Migration utility is installed, you can start the Windows-based Administration, and Manage RADIUS Server.

screen3 , the utility is generating the RADIUS migration package for export.


 


screen4, the package generation is complete. Note the file location,  and package filename in the format of radiusMigration_xxxxxxxxxxxxx.pkg .

After you exit the Administration utility, you can have the RADIUS export utility removed, and the normal RADIUS Admin tool replaced.
