50 IBM Tivoli Monitoring V5.1.1 Implementation Certification Study Guide
4.1 Migrating from Tivoli Distributed Monitoring V4.1
Tivoli Distributed Monitoring V4.1 Advanced Edition cannot coexist with IBM
Tivoli Monitoring V5.1.1. You must upgrade Tivoli Distributed Monitoring to IBM
Tivoli Monitoring V5.1.1. Because there is no direct migration path from Tivoli
Distributed Monitoring V4.1 Advanced Edition to IBM Tivoli Monitoring V5.1.1,
you must upgrade first to IBM Tivoli Monitoring V5.1.
Upgrade versions of Tivoli Manager for Windows NT and older versions of Tivoli
Distributed Monitoring for Windows in the following sequence:
1. Tivoli Distributed Monitoring for Windows NT 3.7
2. Tivoli Distributed Monitoring (Advanced Edition) 4.1
3. Tivoli Monitoring 5.1
4. Tivoli Monitoring 5.1.1
5. Tivoli Monitoring 5.1.2
After you install IBM Tivoli Monitoring V5.1, the upgrade to IBM Tivoli Monitoring
V5.1.1 is similar to a new installation of IBM Tivoli Monitoring V5.1.1. It supports
the Tivoli Software Installation Service or the Tivoli Desktop installation method.
Rapid deployment is not applicable since this is an existing environment.
While upgrading IBM Tivoli Monitoring, we recommend that you stop the IBM
Tivoli Monitoring engine on all endpoints. To stop these processes, enter:
wdmcmd -stop -m all
After the upgrade processing is completed, wait for at least 15 minutes to allow in
the code changes and the endpoint cache status to time out before you restart all
IBM Tivoli Monitoring engines. Then, enter:
wdmcmd -restart -m all
