Verifying your migrated IBM Websphere Commerce Version 8 application

You now have a fully migrated production environment. Verify that your migrated assets are working as designed.


  1. Start the HCL Commerce server.
  2. Check the log file to ensure that no errors occurred during the production environment migration.
    1. Go to directory WC_installdir/logs/WCIM.
    2. Find the migration log file. The log file name is formatted as follows:
      wcim.component.date_time.log, for example, wcim.server.2009.
      The component that was migrated. For example, when you migrate HCL Commerce, the value is server.
      The date and time when the log is created (yyyy. mm. dd. hh. mm. ss) when the log was created.
      The year portion of the time stamp.
      The month portion of the time stamp.
      The day portion of the time stamp.
      The hour portion of the time stamp.
      The minutes portion of the time stamp.
      The seconds portion of the time stamp.
  3. Access your migrated store by entering the store URL into a browser.

    The following URL is an example of a store URL:

    • https://host_name/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/en/auroraesite.
  4. Complete a shopping flow.
  5. Open any of the following HCL Commerce tools and ensure that they function as expected.
    • https://host_name:8001/accelerator
    • https://host_name:8002/adminconsole
    • https://host_name:8004/orgadminconsole
    • https://host_name:8000/lobtools
    The host_name variable represents the fully qualified host name for your HCL Commerce Version 9 production environment.
  6. Complete any additional testing on your custom application, including regression tests.
