You can use Deployment Manager 4.6.x or later in data migration pipelines so that you can automatically export simulation data from a production system and import it into a simulation system. For more information about using Deployment Manager 4.8.x with data migration pipelines, see Exporting and importing simulation data automatically with Deployment Manager.
Install or upgrade Deployment Manager.
- For first-time installations or upgrades from Deployment Manager 3.2.1, install Deployment Manager on the candidate systems (production and simulation environments) and the orchestration server. Upgrading is done automatically, and you do not need to do post-upgrade steps.For more information, see Installing or upgrading to Deployment Manager 4.8.x.
- For first-time installations, configure communication between the orchestration
server and the candidate systems:
Enable the default operators on each system.For more information, see Configuring authentication profiles.
Configure the authentication profiles, which enable communication
between systems, on each system.
Deployment Manager provides default authentication profiles, or you
can create your own.For more information, see Configuring authentication profiles.
- Enable the default operators on each system.
- To move the orchestration server to a different
environment, migrate your pipelines to the new orchestration server, and then,
on the new orchestration server, configure the URL of the new orchestration
server. This URL is used to update the task status on the orchestration server
and diagnostics checks.For more information, see step 2 in Configuring the orchestration server.
