 9ias: Migrating a Portal
Hello,

I have Oracle 9ias (1.0.2.2.1) on Solaris running with an 8i database.
I need to move a portal site from this server to another 9ias server.
Is there a recommended method for doing this? The destination server
is a freshly installed 9ias site.

I assume I could make an export of all objects associated with the
various portal30 users, then import everything into the new server and
run ssodatan...but I'll bet it isn't that simple. Any recommendations
greatly appreciated.

Sincerely, Brian

 9ias: Migrating a Portal

We recently went through this process, going from portal 30981 under 816
to same ias/portal version under 8172 on Solaris on a second box (for
production).

Evidently there are some issues using the standard export/import
utilities, probably having to do with the use of row level security and
object types in the portal30 and portal30_sso schemas.

There are also portal scripts for exporting various segments of your
repository, but they evidently have to be run in the "appropriate"
order, and you have to supply all of the correct object names. There are
evidently some known issues with these scripts as well, supposedly fixed
in the recent 30982 patch.

Our Oracle rep recommended moving the whole database installation, even
though we were migrating from 8.1.6 to 8.1.7 as well.  I ended up
installing fresh software and moving the DB files and then migrating
them (816 -> 8170 -> 8172).  There were a number of adjustments required
to get everything configured correctly.  Email me offline for details.

I'd certainly be interested in hearing a better approach to this, as I
would have preferred to start with a fresh DB installation.
