Problems running the Migration Assessment Utility.
 
CauseThe RSA Authentication Manager 6.1 to 8.0 Migration Assessment Utility analyzes your AM6.1 database to determine if any issues must be addressed prior to migration to AM8.0, such as data incompatibilities or potential areas for cleanup. Addressing obsolete or incompatible data in the AM6.1 before migrating helps to ensure a successful migration to version 8.0 .  You need to be able to successfully run sample TCL scripts on your Primary AM6.1 server, because the Migration Assesment Utility is a TCL script.
 
ResolutionOn Windows
Basic preparation instructions for running a sample TCL script , before running the Migration Assessment Utility  
1. Logon to Windows as the RSA Administrator.
2. Find the directory that has your RSA Installation , which will be generically called (RSAHOME) in this document.  The default directory location is:
c:\program files\rsa security\rsa authentication manager  
Your system may have a different location.  
3.  Open a Command Prompt, and go to (RSAHOME)\utils\tcl\bin
4. Run the test utility:   
   tcl-sd   test.tcl  
It should return a list of Agent hosts. If it does not, troubleshoot as per the Authentication Manager Administration Toolkit P20-22 , as well as Primus A7135 A4656 and A29520 

5. Follow the instructions in the RSA Authentication Manager 6.1 to 8.0 Migration Preparation Guide to run the Migration Assesment Utility. You can also copy 6.1_migration_assessment.tcl  to (ACEHOME)\utils\tcl\bin and run it directly from this directory .
On Unix/Linux
Basic preparation instructions for running a sample TCL script , before running the Migration Assessment Utility
1. Login as the RSA Fileowner and administrator 
2. 1. Find the directory that has your AM6.1 installation, this will vary depending on how AM6.1 was installed on your specific system. This directory will be generically called (AMHOME) in this document. An example of a possible  directory path is :   
/opt/ace    
3. Find thecorrect environment variables for running TCL scripts:
   Go to (ACEHOME)/utils and run :    
 ./admenv    (this command starts with dot-slash)   you will see results similar to this:
# ./admenv
---------------------------------------------------------------------
The following environment variables must be set in order to use the
administration toolkit.  They must be set for each individual toolkit
user or set globally for all users.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
USR_ACE=/opt/ace/prog
VAR_ACE=/opt/ace/data
DLC=/opt/ace/rdbms
PROPATH=/opt/ace/prog/proapi/adbapi.pl:/opt/ace/prog/proapi/sdproapi.pl:/opt/ace/prog/protrig:/opt/ace/prog
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/ace/prog

Your results may be different, Verify your environment variables are correct for your installation, and correct as needed.
4.  go to (ACEHOME)/utils/tcl/bin , and run the tcl test utility:    
./tcl-sd test.tcl    (this command starts with dot-slash)  
This should report back a list of Agent Hosts.  If it does not, troubleshoot as per the Authentication Manager Administration Toolkit P20-22 , as well as Primus A7135 A4656 and A29520    

5. Follow the instructions in the RSA Authentication Manager 6.1 to 8.0 Migration Preparation Guide to run the Migration Assesment Utility.   You can also copy 6.1_migration_assessment.tcl  to (ACEHOME)/utils/tcl/bin and run it directly from this directory .
