Copying portal binary files to the deployment manager

Complete this task if the deployment manager is not sharing application binary files with a Portal install.

Procedure

Copy the required files (including the migration plug-in) from the HCL Digital Experience Version 8.5 binary installation to the target deployment manager system:
  1. Copy the filesForDmgr.zip file to the remote deployment manager system.
  2. Expand the filesForDmgr.zip file into the installation root directory of the deployment manager. 
    For example, in the C:\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer directory.

If the deployment manager profile was not created in the default AppServer/profiles/Dmgr01 directory, then the metadata_wkplc.xml file in the AppServer/profiles/Dmgr01/config/.repository/metadata_wkplc.xml directory in the compressed file, must be copied into the config/.repository subdirectory under the deployment manager profile directory.

Failure to copy the migration plug-in files to the deployment manager can result in the following error when you try to upgrade the ConfigEngine tool:com.ibm.websphere.management.exception.InvalidConfigDataTypeException: ADMG0007E: The configuration data type CellCompRegistryCollection is not valid.
