For 8.3 and earlier: Migrating rules and objects to the new rules schema

Use the migrate script to migrate the rules tables and other required database objects from the existing rules schema to the new rules schema. To minimize the time required, run the migration scripts from the same data center as the database server.

Pega strongly recommends that you use the Pega-provided migration script. The use of vendor tools to manage this step is not recommended, since there are additional manual steps required to migrate the schema, not documented here, if you do not use the migrate script.
  1. Use a text editor to edit the migrateSystem.properties file in the scripts directory of your distribution image:

    Pega-image\scripts\migrateSystem.properties

  2. Configure the source properties.

    # Connection Information pega.source.jdbc.driver.jar=full path/DRIVER.jar pega.source.jdbc.driver.class=database driver class pega.source.database.type=database vendor type pega.source.jdbc.url=URL of database pega.source.jdbc.username=Deployment user name pega.source.jdbc.password=password pega.source.rules.schema=existing rules schema name pega.source.data.schema=existing data schema name

  3. Configure the target properties. Leave the target data schema name blank:

    pega.target.jdbc.driver.jar=full path/DRIVER.JAR pega.target.jdbc.driver.class=database driver class pega.target.database.type=database vendor type pega.target.jdbc.url=database URL pega.target.jdbc.username=Deployment user name pega.target.jdbc.password=password pega.target.rules.schema=new rules schema

    If pega.target.data.schema is blank, the rules schema is used by default.
  4. Configure the bulkmover directory:

    pega.bulkmover.directory=full path to output directory

  5. Configure a temporary directory:

    pega.migrate.temp.directory=full path to temporary directory

  6. Configure the operations to be performed by the utility as shown below:

    pega.move.admin.table=true pega.clone.generate.xml=true pega.clone.create.ddl=true pega.clone.apply.ddl=true pega.bulkmover.unload.db=true pega.bulkmover.load.db=true pega.rules.objects.generate=false pega.rule.objects.apply=false

  7. Save the properties file.

  8. Open a command prompt, and navigate to the scripts directory.

  9. Type migrate.bat or ./migrate.sh to run the script.

Pega Platform writes command-line output to a file in the Pega-image\scripts\logs directory.
