I am upgrading my EEM to the 12.5 version and was thinking that the ability for me to assign thread_dump permission to users would be available (since it was not a feature when I created my first EEM Global App in 8.4)
However, looking at the eem.register.app,xml I find no reference.
Looking thru the 10.1 documentation, I find the ability to assign thread_dump in a domain.xml:
<grant user="cstevens" permission="thread_dump" />
Can I add this to the eem.register.app in the Domain section?
Also. I thought I saw a document here about upgrading from 8.4 to 12.5 but looking thru the Document section I cannot find it. I would appreciate it if any of you have a copy (I have lost mine) that you can post it or send it to me.
All documentation is available on docs.ca.com. Were you not able to find it there?
I did a further search and the docs do have how to add it to the EEM Global use...I had not searched far enough.
Also another reminder if anyone has the document about converting from 8.5 to 12.x I would appreciate it...
Security setup is exactly the same as using domains.xml.
Upgrading or migrating EEM:
Thanx for the help above. I have my 12.5 up, and talking to LDAP. I have everything set up to turn it over except all the APM access policies that I have added for users. I only add the additional policies on specified users since I have an all identities policy for read-only access (the default for anyone with a ADS login ID). I need to know what is the minimum I can do to get these user setup copied across....
I see in the 8.4 manuals that I should back up certain files:
You must back up the following CA EEM files and folders:
Defines the CA EEM Server configuration settings.
Defines the CA EEM Server session settings.
Defines the custom mapped LDAP settings.
Defines the CA EEM GUI launch settings.
Defines the event configuration settings
Defines the database that stores events.
Defines the folder where the current events are stored.
Defines the folder where the archived events are stored.
CA Directory folder
Defines the Data DSA and Router DSA file references. The CA EEM Server uses this information to read the configuration settings for its internal datastore.
Defines the configuration settings for the Data DSA that manages the CA EEM Server data.
Defines the certificate files used during a failover configuration.
But I have these same files in the 12.5 directories on the other server that I am building. So I do the restore procedure as specified? What files to I need to restore to get my users definitions back since I do not want to muck with the current set up for External Server on the new server (it is using a new user ID and password etc).
The I could not find these answers in the above link....
To bring all the user definitions over to the new 12.5 server the best option is to backup/restore the 8.4 EEM data store using the dxdumpdb utility. The EEM 12.51 wiki has details:
Upgrading - CA Embedded Entitlements Manager - 12.51 - CA Technologies Documentation
Hope this helps
Thanx....so it looks like I would use the export to LDIF:
Export CA EEM Database to an LDIF File - CA Embedded Entitlements Manager - 12.51 - CA Technologies Documentation
then copy the file over to my new server and do the import.
I did not see these two options since they were hidden under the Migrating from unsupported OS....did not open that up since both my OS are the same and supported....
