RA migration guide instructions from V2 to V3

    Hi,

    We are in a process of upgrading our RA  from V2 to V3

    We have plenty of FTP and WS jobs.

    Currently we face incompatibility issues between the versions which do not migrate properly.

    Is there any migration guide?

    Or has anyone did the migration automatically ?


    Any points that could hint?


    Thanks

    Benny

    For RA FTP, you should be able to upgrade to 3 (I would recommend 3.1.3 for this portion) and then follow the upgrade steps outlined in the documentation:

    http://docs.automic.com/documentation/RA_FTP/3.1/english/RA_FTP_AGENT_GUIDE/help_en.htm#FTP/Upgrading_Jobs_from_a_Previous_FTP_Agent_Version.htm?Highlight=upgrade

    After the upgrade is complete, you can upgrade to the latest solution.

    WS does not have a direct upgrade path but you can have both solutions installed at the same time - 3.0 will have REST and SOAP jobs whereas the 2x Agent only has the single type. 

    It may make sense to rework some of your jobs, but for ones that have ran successfully in 2.0 you can take the xml request and paste it into the 3.0 Agent. This makes for a faster transition between Agents, but it does not allow you to use the object request type.

    I believe 3.1.5 is available.

      Hi Darren and Pete ,

    Though gives a partial solution, it still seems risky. We are trying to avoid manual conversion. 

    According to support answer Automation Version 11 can not support RA V2.

    So we are back in square 1 for manually converting WS. 

    This lack of backwards computability , or upgrade process or even official instructions is problematic on production systems.
