Migration of SAP Portal from AIX to Linux


Hi Experts,

We are migrtaing our Portal system which has got CI & DB running on One aix host & 4 application servers (diaglog instances) running on separate 4 hosts.

We are migrating CI & DB using SAPINST using load based migration.

After migration when we are starting the Config tools, the application server instances are still visible in config tool tree.

When we are installing the application servers on Linux hosts it is picking up the old instance ids & old configuration from AIX hosts.

We tried deleteing the old application servers from configuration editor of config tool under cluster data & then deleting property sheets of old Application servers & old dispatchers. But again when we install the application servers, it still picks up the same instance id numbers & old configuration of AIX hosts.

Can you please advise if there is any way of preventing the new application servers picking up the old configuration as uninstalling the application server before migration is not feasable for us.

Also if there is any harm in new instances picking up the old instance id numbers & old configuration.

Thanks in advance,

Warn Regards,
