During our RAM upgrade we hit a snag. During the RTC upgrade we get this error. It says we have to manually upgrade the dashboards in 3.0 before finishing the upgrade to 4.0. As this process has been fully automatic until this point there is no documentation on what to do to manually to resolve this. Has anyone run across this problem? We are unable to move past this point of the upgrade.

When upgrading to version 3, a manual step is required to migrate the dashboards after the server is started (see upgrade documentation for details). This step was either missed or did not complete successfully. If it was missed, you must abort this upgrade to version 4, complete the dashboard migration in your version 3 server, then retry the upgrade to version 4. If the dashboard migration was unsuccessful due to an error during migration, you may either call IBM support for assistance or opt to ignore the failure and continue with the upgrade. If you opt to ignore the error and continue, dashboards will continue to function, except that the problematic dashboard(s) will be permanently lost. .

Hi Jeffery

This is a known problem.
Even if you are not created explicitly a dashboard the fact of logging on to the internal RAM RTC server has the consequence of creation of a dashboard and as a result prevents the automatic migration of the RTC server from 2 to 4.
The following defect is tracking the problem:
RATLC01547390 Dashboard errors while migrating RTC server from v2 to v4
The solution is outlined in the Work Item.
You need to remove the dashboard manually using the java script in the defect before performing the migration/upgrade to

Did you create a backup before proceeding with the migration as you probably will have to rollback to
Check the following WI to get information regarding backup and rollback

I hope this will help you.

Francois is correct. You will need to first restore the RAM RTC database (don't worry about the RAM DB, that hasn't been migrated at this point). You will also need to uninstall the deployed apps --> RAM1WebApplication, ramccm, ramjts, Reinstall the setup.ear for, run the Setup again to reinstall the RTC 2002 app so you have a running RTC 2 again. Follow the steps in work item 85594 to remove the dashboard. Then update the setup.ear to and go through the steps to deploy and migrate.

I wanted to follow up with the resolution on the issue posted by Jeff. We worked with Ben Tran from the RAM Support Group, who was very knowledgeable, very precise in directions, and really helpful. He pointed out immediately that we needed to clean the dashboard. We did some preliminary work to make sure that everything is backed up, clean, etc. then, we ran the script to clean up the dashboards. That was successful.

When we tried to re-run the migration of the databases, we ran into another problem (see error message below) indicating that we are using an old database version. After some more investigation, we decided to simply blow away the RAM related databases, we started clean with the ram.setup path for and this time around, instead of using the embedded RTC application, we pointed RAM to work with the existing JTS and RTC servers that we have in the POC (proof of concept) environment. The loss of data was minimal, and the new setup is actually much better.

At this point, everyone is working fine in the new version. Thank you for your help.
