Migrating Viewer Configurations

Configuration migration is not available for Host Access Server Windows Edition 2.2.1 or earlier versions, nor for any version of Host Viewer Services or HostView Server.

To migrate viewer configurations created in a previous version
  1. Run MCS.

  2. In the MCS left pane, point to Products and then click Terminal Viewers.

  3. Under Terminal Viewers, click the plus sign next to Migration, and then choose one of the following:
    To migrate
    Express Viewer configurations Express Viewers Migration
    Enterprise Viewer configurations Enterprise Viewers Migration

    The migration page you select appears in the right pane of the MCS window.

The Express Viewers Migration wizard migrates u3270, u5250, and uVT configurations and keyboard maps from Host Access Server (HAS) Management 2.2.x for use with Terminal Viewers. You can also migrate your existing WebView user and group assignments, as long as the configuration and WebView use the same name, and as long as the same directory service is used.

The Enterprise Viewers Migration Wizard migrates 3270, 5250, and VT configurations from Host Access Server (HAS) 2.3.x and 2.4.x for use with Terminal Viewers, including the following:

To view detailed results of the migration, refer to the mcs.log file after the migration is completed. This file lists all of the configurations that were successfully migrated, and reports any errors that occurred. The mcs.log file is located in the MCS installation directory.
