This article provides information on completing a successful migrating from RSA Authentication Manager 6.1 production data to RSA Authentication Manager 8.1 using the Migration Assessment Utility.
RSA Authentication Manager 8.1 software comes in three form factors:
As a virtual appliance running on VMware (Authentication Manager 8.0 and higher),
As a virtual appliance running on Microsoft Hyper-V (Authentication Manager 8.1 SP1 and higher), or
As a hardware appliance.
Each option is bundled with the SUSE Enterprise Linux operating system.
NOTE: As a prerequisite of migrating to Authentication Manager 8.1, the Authentication Manager 6.1 servers must be at Authentication Manager 6.1.2 in order to create a server and/or log database dump file that will be used to perform the migration to Authentication Manager 8.1 or Authentication Manager 8.1 SP1. If your Authentication Manager servers are below 6.1.2, please contact RSA technical support.
To download RSA Authentication Manager 8.1, the migration assessment utility and documentation
Download the utility and documentation required to complete the process.
Review the RSA Authentication Manager 6.1 to 8.0 Migration Preparation Guide.
To run the utility on a Windows server
Unzip the am_migration_assessment_utility_<datestamp>.zip into a working directory.
As a local administrator, create a directory named migration in the $RSA_HOME\utils directory. By default, this would be C:\Program Files\RSA Authentication Manager\utils on an Authentication Manager 6.1 server or C:\authmgr\utils on an RSA SecurID Appliance 2.0.2 box.
Copy the 6.1_migration_assessment.tcl file to either C:\Program Files\RSA Authentication Manager\utils \tcl\bin\ or C:\authmgr\utils\tcl\bin\.
Open a command prompt and navigate to either C:\Program Files\RSA Authentication Manager\utils or C:\authmgr\utils.
Enter the following command:
As an example:
Open the file generated called 6.1_migration_assessment_mmddyyhhmm.html in a web browser to review the results. An example of the output is below:
To run the utility on a UNIX server
Unzip the am_migration_assessment_utility_datestamp.zip into a working directory.
As a root user create a working folder in /tmp called migration.
Create a new shell script called migration_report.sh in /tmp/migration.
Edit the migration_report.sh using an editor such as vi.
Copy the text shown below into the script and save it.
In an X Windows graphical user interface (such as Gnome), open the 6.1_migration_assessment_mmddyyhhmm.html file in a web browser or copy the file from UNIX platform to a Windows platform to open it in a web browser.
The Migration Assessment Utility must be used on the primary Authentication Manager server where the Authentication Manager services are running. If services are not running, the following error will occur:
Sd_ApiInit Error Failed to Connect to serv DB C:\Program Files\RSA Security\RSA Authentication Manager\data\sdserv
"Sd_ApiInit "" "" 1"
invoked from within
"puts [Sd_ApiInit "" "" 1]..."
(file "6.1_migration_assessment.tcl" line 32)
If any problems arise when using the Authentication Manager 6.1 Migration Assessment Utility, please contact your local RSA Customer Support center.
