This atricle is applicable to the migration process of Operation Automation Management Node from RHEL 5 to RHEL 6 if Windows Azure Pack components are installed.

To check that Windows Azure Pack components are intalled on the Management Node, execute the command:

rpm -qa | grep WAP

If the command reports that the WAP rpm package is installed, then the additioanl action is required to migrate Windows Azure Pack components during migration of the Management Node from RHEL 5 to RHEL 6

For example, the output is:



  1. Get the WAP rpm package of the same version as installed on the RHEL 5 node
  2. Save the WAP rpm package to any safe external storage
  3. Archive WAP configuration files by executing commands:

    cd /usr/local/share
    tar -czvf WAP.tar.gz WAP
  4. Copy WAP.tar.gz to any safe location


Restore the WAP component after migration of the Managenet Node is finised:

  1. Copy the backed up data to the destination host:

    • WAP rpm
    • WAP.tag.gz
  2. Execute commands:

    mkdir /var/log/WAP
    rpm -ihv --noscripts <WAP.rpm>
    tar -xf WAP.tar.gz -C /usr/local/share
    chkconfig --level 3 WAP on
    service WAP start


    • <WAP.rpm> - the name of the WAP rpm package, for example: WAP-1.4-307.parallels.noarch.rpm. Use the same version of RPM that is installed on the source node.
