Migrating from Web Content Manager version 6.1
March 31, 2014
These are the migration options available when migrating from Web Content Manager version 6.1.
Planning for changes to web content when migrating from Web Content Manager version 6.1
Migration projects require careful planning to synchronize changes from the old production system with the new system. Content creation can still continue on the old system while the new system is installed. A typical migration plan includes time for provisioning, configuring, testing, and tuning infrastructure and software. Custom or third-party applications require their own migration procedures.
Propagation of web content in multistage deployments
There are different options available when migrating a system with syndicators and subscribers.
Managed pages migration
Managed pages is automatically disabled during migration. It is recommended to enable managed pages after migration to take advantage of new features, such as syndication and versioning of pages, and the ability to manage pages in projects. When migrating systems that access web content from virtual portals there are additional steps to perform after enabling managed pages.
Library export and import and migration
Web content libraries can be exported from one system and imported onto another. This tool can be used as part of a migration, but there are some limitations to the use of this tool.
Web content migration and cross-version syndication
