JBoss Server Migration Tool

The JBoss Server Migration Tool is a tool that migrates JBoss Application Servers. It reads the server configurations files for a previous release of WildFly or JBoss EAP, referred to as the source server, and migrates them to the latest release or target server. Besides the configurations, the tool is also capable of migrating modules, deployments and other resources found in the source server.

System Requirements

Build the Server Migration Tool

  1. Use the following command to build the tool from source:

     mvn clean install
    

Run the Server Migration Tool (Standalone Build)

  1. Navigate to the dist/standalone/target/ directory and unzip the jboss-server-migration-VERSION_NUMBER.zip file

     unzip jboss-server-migration-1.8.0.Final-SNAPSHOT.zip
    
  2. Open a terminal and navigate to the dist/standalone/target/jboss-server-migration/ directory.

  3. Run the following command.

     For Linux|Mac:   ./jboss-server-migration.sh -s SOURCE_SERVER_PATH -t TARGET_SERVER_PATH
     For Windows: jboss-server-migration.bat -s SOURCE_SERVER_PATH -t SOURCE_SERVER_PATH
    

    Replace SOURCE_SERVER_PATH with the path to previous version of the server installation that you want to migrate from, for example: ${user.home}/wildfly-11.0.0.Final/

    Replace TARGET_SERVER_PATH with the path to current version of the server installation that you want the old configuration migrated to, for example: ${user.home}/wildfly-16.0.0.Final/

  4. When you execute the command, the tool identifies the source and target servers from provided paths, and starts the server migration. ---------------------------------------------------------- ---- JBoss Server Migration Tool ----------------------- ----------------------------------------------------------

  5. Each server migration consists of several migration tasks, which may require or not user interaction. INFO --- Migrating modules requested by environment...

     INFO  Module cmtool.module1:main migrated.
     
     INFO  --- Migrating standalone server...

     INFO  Non-persistent deployment cmtool-helloworld5.war migrated.

     INFO  Migrating host configuration host.xml...
     INFO  Migrating host master...
     INFO  Security realms migrated.
    
  6. Once the server migration is done a Task Summary report will be shown, that summarizes the results of migration tasks. Server migration done.

  7. You should see the following message when it completes. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Migration Result: SUCCESS ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  8. Additional reports may be found in the reports/ directory.

  • migration-report.html: The HTML report is a nicely formatted report showing the detailed results of the migration.
  • migration-report.xml: The XML file includes all migration data collected.
  1. File log(s) may be found in the logs/ directory.
  • migration.log: The log contains detailed information about the server migration execution.
