24.2 Migrating FTP to OES 2018 SP3

This section describes how to migrate FTP from a supported OES environment to OES 2018 SP3.

Before you proceed with the migration, review Prerequisites. In this section, the source server refers to a supported OES server and the target server refers to an OES 2018 SP3 server.

24.2.3 Migration Procedure

Same tree migrations with identity transfer

Perform the following procedures on the target server:

  1. Copy the /etc/pure-ftpd/pure-ftpd.conf file from the source server.

    NOTE:If the migration is being performed on a cluster setup, copy the pure-ftpd.conf file on the shared volume of cluster.

  2. Run /opt/novell/pure-ftpd/novell-pure-ftpd-config.sh script. This will update the pure-ftpd.conf file with the new parameters added in OES2015 or later.

  3. Remove LD_PRELOAD statement from the /usr/lib/systemd/system/pure-ftpd.service file, if present.

  4. Restart pure-ftpd using the systemctl restart pure-ftpd.service command.
