Migration

DAV Content

WebDAV content (usually reports) is migrated to a SAS® Content Server in SAS 9.2 and later.

For any updates or hot fixes that are required before you can migrate, see the baseline requirements topic.

For properties that you can specify for the SAS Migration Utility during analysis and migration, see the chapter about product-specific SAS Migration Utility properties in SAS Intelligence Platform: Migration Guide If you have WebDAV content, the -DAVTIER option or SMU.isdavtier property is required. If Xythos is the WebDAV server, set the SMU.isdavtier property (or the -DAVTIER option) only on the node that Xythos is running on, so that the content is migrated on that node only. Use the Xythos properties if a Xythos content server is used in the previous deployment. Use the DAV properties if a non-Xythos (for example, Apache HTTP) content server is used in the previous deployment.

Messages

caution The Xythos home directory was not found at pathname.
Fix the SMU.WFS.XythosHome property to point at the correct directory. See the chapter about product-specific SAS Migration Utility properties in SAS Intelligence Platform: Migration Guide

caution The Xythos home doesn't appear to be correct.
Verify that the SMU.WFS.XythosHome property points to the directory that is currently used by the Xythos server. See the chapter about product-specific SAS Migration Utility properties in SAS Intelligence Platform: Migration Guide

caution The DAV content was not found at pathname.
This message indicates that the WebDAV server at the reported URL could not be contacted. In other words, a connection to the WebDAV server could not be made. Verify that the server is running and the URL is correct. The WebDAV server must be running so that the SAS Migration Utility can retrieve and package the content.

caution The content area specified in the metadata mapping was not found at pathname.
You might need to update the mapping in the previous deployment's metadata. For example, use the Business Report Manager plug-in in SAS Management Console to update the properties. In addition, verify that the SAS Migration Utility -DAVTIER option is specified on the correct host. This message is reported for file-system--based mappings only.

caution Content URL pathname is mapped to by multiple metadata roots: repository-names
This message indicates that in the previous deployment, multiple repositories are pointing to the same WebDAV location. In the target SAS deployment, this content will be migrated to the first repository that was found. To change the mappings after you migrate, use the DAVTree utility in the target SAS deployment to move the WebDAV content. For more information about the DAVTree utility, see SAS Intelligence Platform: Middle-Tier Administration Guide.
Remember to Specify the Option

If you have WebDAV content, the -DAVTIER option or SMU.isdavtier property is required. The Analysis Report does not remind you to specify the option or the property if it is missing. See the SAS Intelligence Platform: Migration Guide
