You can use Deployment Manager 4.6.x or later in data migration pipelines so that you can automatically export simulation data from a production system and import it into a simulation system. For more information about using Deployment Manager 4.8.x with data migration pipelines, see Exporting and importing simulation data automatically with Deployment Manager.
To install, upgrade, and configure Deployment Manager on the simulation and production environments and on the orchestration server, perform the following steps:
Install or upgrade Deployment Manager.
- For first-time installations or upgrades from Deployment Manager 3.2.1, install Deployment Manager on the candidate systems (production and simulation environments) and the orchestration server. Upgrading is done automatically, and you do not need to do post-upgrade steps.For more information, see Installing or upgrading to Deployment Manager 4.8.x.
For first-time installations, configure communication between the orchestration server and the candidate systems:
Enable the default operators on each system.
Configure the authentication profiles, which enable communication between systems, on each system. Deployment Manager provides default authentication profiles, or you can create your own.
For more information, see Configuring authentication profiles.
To move the orchestration server to a different environment, migrate your pipelines to the new orchestration server, and then, on the new orchestration server, configure the URL of the new orchestration server. This URL is used to update the task status on the orchestration server and diagnostics checks.
For more information, see step 2 in Configuring the orchestration server.
