I have a WCS on an old WLSE appliance (Linux version). I have 18 controllers and 1 location appliance connected to this WCS. I have outgrown the 500 AP limit. We have purchased a new Enterprise plus license for 2000 APs. I would like to migrate the database to a new Linux server. However, the name of the server and the IP address of the server will be different. I'm looking for the proper steps to move over to the new WCS without needing to rebuild everything. Is there any documentation?
1.You will need to just make a backup from the CLI of your WLSE:
/opt/WCSX.X/bin > ./Backup
2.Then export the backup file and restore it on the WCS on your other server, and Restore the file. If it's windows there is an icon under Start -> Program Files -> WCS. Under Linux its the Restore script.
Make sure the versions are compatible, when you check the release notes of the version of your new WCS server:
