Before You Begin

When you copy User Parameter Agents across systems, you can retain the existing data or create a new database.

Note: Copied database specification (DBSPEC) files must be from a system that has the same TeamQuest software level and operating system.

Steps

To copy User Parameter Agents and retain existing data:

  1. Shut down TeamQuest Manager using the following command on the old and the new system:

    tqmgr -shutdown
  1. Copy the agentlist and userpdef files from the \data\DBNAME directory for the working database to the new database directory (\data\DBNAME).
  2. Make sure the file that the user agent runs is in the same location on the new system and runs correctly.
  3. Start TeamQuest Manager on both systems using the following command:

    tqmgr -service

To copy User Parameter Agents and create a new database:

  1. Shut down TeamQuest Manager on new system using the following command:

    tqmgr -shutdown
  1. Create a database specification (DBSPEC) file on the old system using the following command:

    tqdbu -d databasename -o DBSPECfilename
  1. Delete the new systems on the existing database using the following command:

    tqdbu -r -d databasename
  1. Make sure the file that the user agent runs is in the same location on the new system and runs correctly.
  2. Create a new database using the following command:

    tqdbu -c DBSPECfilename
  1. Manage the new database if it is not using the following command:

    tqmgr -adddb databasename
  1. Start the agents using the following command:

    tqmgr -service
