Without manual intervention before upgrading to SLES 11, workloads in SLES 10 rule sets are converted in a default manner that may not meet your priority-scheduling goals. Well prior to the operating system upgrade, use the Pre-Migration Tool to select SLES 10 rule sets for which you want to refine workload priority-scheduling settings in preparation for migration.
From the Pre-Migration Tool menu bar, click
A wizard appears, displaying the .Select RuleSet page. If workloads are not defined for a SLES 10 rule set, the corresponding row in the Available RuleSets grid is unavailable, and the Status value is set to Workloads Not Available. In this case, no workloads are migrated upon upgrade, but other components of the rule set are.
Click the row housing the rule set for which you want to refine workload priority-scheduling settings in preparation for migration to SLES 11, and click Next.
- If you did not previously complete the pre-migration process for the rule set, the Current Enforcement Priority To New Workload Method Mapping page appears, where you can adjust the SLES 11 workload method (that is, tier) mapping for the rule set workloads, if necessary.
- If you did previously complete the pre-migration process for the rule set, a message appears, prompting you to indicate whether you want to overwrite the existing pre-migration settings (Yes) or leave the existing pre-migration settings in place (No).
