Migrate the OnCommand Workflow Automation installation

Contributors

You can migrate an OnCommand Workflow Automation (WFA) installation to maintain the unique WFA database key that is installed during the WFA installation.

  • You must perform this procedure only when you want to migrate a WFA installation that includes the WFA database key to a different server.

  • A WFA database restore does not migrate the WFA key.

  • Migrating a WFA installation does not migrate the SSL certificates.

  • The default WFA installation path is used in this procedure.

    If you changed the default location during installation, you must use the changed WFA installation path.

Steps
  1. Access WFA through a web browser as an admin.

  2. Back up the WFA database.

  3. Open a shell prompt on the WFA server and change directories to the following location: WFA_install_location/wfa/bin/

  4. Enter the following at the shell prompt to obtain the database key:

    ./wfa -key

  5. Note the database key that is displayed.

  6. Uninstall WFA.

  7. Install WFA on the required system.

  8. Open a shell prompt on the WFA server and change the directories to the following location: WFA_install_location/wfa/bin/

  9. At the shell prompt, install the database key by entering the following command:

    ./wfa -key=yourdatabasekey

    yourdatabasekey is the key that you noted from the previous WFA installation.

  10. Restore the WFA database from the backup that you created.
