If your target system includes extended resources like ECM and Lotus® Quickr™ connectors, custom themes, or custom portlets, there are additional considerations for a successful migration.
To ensure that any customization made to an 18.104.22.168 system will work as expected on an 8.5 system, leverage the place migration option. This will allow you to work through enabling any customization such as custom themes or custom applications.
Custom theme considerations
If you have customized the default Lotus Quickr theme on the target server, the customized theme will not migrate from the Lotus Quickr 22.214.171.124 system. Lotus Quickr 126.96.36.199-based themes will not function on Lotus Quickr 8.5 due to underlying changes in WebSphere® Portal 6.1. It is recommended that any theme customization work start with the new Lotus Quickr 8.5 theme and be deployed before migrating from 188.8.131.52.
See Creating custom themes and skins
on customizing the Lotus Quickr 8.5 theme.
Custom portlet considerations
Custom portlets deployed on the target server will be migrated to the target Lotus Quickr 8.5 system.
It is recommended that before migrating from 184.108.40.206, you manually test any custom portlets on a Lotus Quickr 8.5 system. Due to underlying changes in Lotus Quickr, there is no guarantee that the custom portlets will be compatible with the Lotus Quickr 8.5 environment. Once you have tested your custom portlets on an 8.5 system and are satisfied with their function, deploy the updated portlets to the migrated Lotus Quickr 8.5 system.
