Tip: IBM Quickr for WebSphere Portal 8.5 – Migration Strategies

leave a comment »

Fundamentally there are two advertised approaches for migrating from Quickr for WebSphere Portal 8.1.1.1 to 8.5. One approach is to leverage the Backup & Restore functionality of IBM Quickr and another is to embrace a complete migration following a detailed procedure that migrates all places on a server.  There is a potential issue with the former scenario that should not be overlooked. That is this: Be sure that all places to be restored have been backed up AFTER upgrading the “source” server to 8.1.1.1 and that each backup references the current page and portlet deployment of the system. Customers who rely on backups that are months or more old may be gravely disappointed when attempting to restore such places on their new 8.5 platform.
