Migrate multiple collector instances

I have multiple (4) collector instances on one server at version 6.1 which I will migrate one collector instance to 6.3 and 3 collector instances to 6.5. I have installed 6.3 and 6.5 in separate folders. Should I create the 4 instances on both 6.3 and 6.5 before I run migration tools? Or migration tools will create 4 instances for me? In this case, which migration tools version should i use?

Hello Emily,

The recommendation is to use the latest Migration Tool always.

You can migrate the collector instances as per your requirements e.g.

  • Upgrade and migrate default collector instance
  • Upgrade and migrate additional collector instances (not default collector)
  • Upgrade and migrate a single collector instances (not default collector)

Use the following link get the correct syntax.

Hi Babar,

Thank you for your response. It helps. once more question, Do I need to use

./dtcollector -instance "instances name" -listen :9997

to create instances in the new env: 6.3 or 6.5 before I run migration tools.

Regards.

Hello Emily,

Exactly you will have to create an instance prior to migrate the existing one.
