Upgrade Multiserver CFMX 6.1 to CFMX 7 - Coldfusion - Getting Started

Hi, We have a CFMX 6.1 (jrun 4 updater 5) multiserver installation + Apache. We'd like to upgrade to CFMX 7 multiserver installation. Our IT department says there isn't really an upgrade, but a whole new installation which means redefining all datasources and passwords, all scheduled tasks, all security settings and rebuilding and configuring all Verity collections. Being short on resources they've given a timeframe of 8 months to 12 months... IF they can free up the resources. A couple of questions... Can the above settings be archived in CFMX6.1 and then deployed on CFMX7? If not, does anyone know ...

    Default Upgrade Multiserver CFMX 6.1 to CFMX 7

    Hi, We have a CFMX 6.1 (jrun 4 updater 5) multiserver installation + Apache.
    We'd like to upgrade to CFMX 7 multiserver installation. Our IT department says
    there isn't really an upgrade, but a whole new installation which means
    redefining all datasources and passwords, all scheduled tasks, all security
    settings and rebuilding and configuring all Verity collections. Being short on
    resources they've given a timeframe of 8 months to 12 months... IF they can
    free up the resources. A couple of questions... Can the above settings be
    archived in CFMX6.1 and then deployed on CFMX7? If not, does anyone know if
    there is an easier way or more efficient way of upgrading then the above
    scenario? Thanks, Bob

    They are right it is a separate install. However, you can manually trigger the
    CF6 to CF7 migration (if it doesn't detect it at installation). To do this
    install CF7 next to CF6, then.. 1) copy all of the
    '%CF6Root%/cfusion/lib/neo-*.xml' files to you
    '%CF7Root%/cfusion/lib/cf6settings/' folder 2) edit the
    '%CF7Root%/cfusion/lib/adminconfig.xml' file. 3) set the runmigrationwizard
    and migratecf6 entries to true <?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
    <setupconfig> <runsetupwizard>false</runsetupwizard>
    <runmigrationwizard>true</runmigrationwizard>
    <runmxmigrationwizard>false</runmxmigrationwizard>
    <migratecf5>false</migratecf5> <migratecf6>true</migratecf6>
    <setupoptions> <sampleapps>false</sampleapps>
    <odbc>false</odbc> <enablerds>true</enablerds> </setupoptions>
    </setupconfig> 4) log back into the CF7 admin, this should trigger the
    migration wizard in CF7 and copy all of the settings from the xml files in the
    cf6settings folder. let me know if you have any questions. ---nimer

    Thanks for the reply. Sorry for the delay on my end, I thought I had checked
    the subscribe to this topic box, but I guess I didn't. Whew! If I install CF7
    next CF6 won't that prevent me from installing the multiserver version of CF7?
    I thought I would have to uninstall jrun4 (which would uninstall CF6) before
    installing CF7 multiserver version?
