I have just done this using 7.1.3 upgrade ( I want to to get everything up and running the same as the current production environment and then will upgrade to 7.1.4). I'm assuming that since I upgraded using the 7.1.3 disk I will need to reapply all my Fixpacks and patches for this release or were they migrated as part of the backup. I doubt it would work but thought I'd check just in case.
Do it the easy way.
1. use Serversetup too and do a maintenance backup of /usr/OV/ALL.USER
2. Tar the directory created -- /usr/OV.back.V7r1
3. copy the tar file to the new system and untar it.
4. Do an update install on the new system. "instalnv -k SERVER -u"
Everything should be there and functional.
You really should get current with NetVIew 7.1.5 or at least with 7.1.4 since 7.1.3 is now out of service if I remember correctly.
Check the archives and you'll see the details of the migration spelled out a number of times.

Subject: [NV-L] Migrating Netview 7.1.3 from Solaris 7 to Solaris 8 or 9
I need to upgrade our Netview hardware urgently due to capacity issues. Planning to move from Sun E450 Solaris 7 to Sunfire V210. Had hoped for a quick migration by moving /usr/OV directory from current system to save configs, customisations, databases, mibs, etc. (I currently use nvhotbackup and reset-ci to duplicate our production Netview on a backup server every week with no problems).
I'm assuming this migration would be successful if the new system had the same OS, however minimum OS for all the new Sun servers is Sol 8. My assumption is that I will probably have problems if I just move the /usr/OV from Sol 7 to Sol 8 server. Has anyone else tried this, or at least tried moving the databases and config files from Sol 7 to Sol 8. Does anyone know if this is possible? We have a huge database and a lot of customisations so do not want to start afresh. Is there any documentation on migrating to a new server and OS?
Thanks in advance for your advice.
