How to migrate Build Manager to another Domino server

Follow

To migrate Build Manager to a new server you will need to consider a few things before you start the process.

If the new server has a different server name than the existing one, migrating Build Manager is a major undertaking. One of the reasons is that path names are used to track all history for all databases. As a result, changing the server name would, in fact, break that history.

To maintain that history, one will need to either use Teamstudio Configurator or write a custom agent to change the server names in the Build Manager Configuration database, all CIAO log databases, and any other databases related to Build Manager.

Applications Files

  1. Replicate all development databases to the new Dev server, ideally, keep the same file pathnames

Notes.ini

  1. Copy the [BuildManager] section from the old server’s notes.ini to the new server’s notes.ini.

Build Manager / CIAO! Configuration Database

  1. Copy/Replicate the CIAO! Configuration database to the new Dev server
  2. Using Teamstudio Configurator (or a custom made agent), search and replace the old server name with the new one in the documents

CIAO! Log Database(s)

  1. Copy/Replicate the CIAO! Log database(s) to the new Dev server.
  2. Using Teamstudio Configurator (or a custom made agent), search and replace the old server name with the new one in the documents.
  3. In each CIAO Log on the new server, select the whole history for a database and run Actions, Repair Selected History. Choose the new CIAO config database, then choose the CIAO configuration document that relates to the selected history.
  4. Open the database on the new server in the CIAO client and confirm that the history has the previous versions displayed.

Template Registry

  1. Copy/Replicate the Template Registry to the new Dev server.
