Error description

  • If a customer didn't implement the cdp directly after a previous
    migration or re-customisation action, and starts cdp in one of
    the 2 modes, problems to complete this new action occur leading
    to unpredictable results. In the worst case, the actions cannot
    be completed at all.
    The tool needs to be improved to ensure, that even without a
    previous implement, customer can't get stuck with the follow-on
    actions. When interrupting a preparation, the system needs to
    remain in a state where further processing is possible.
    Customers need to get the possibility to easily check, whether
    the previous actions have been completed successfully.
    Completion of previous migration or re-customisation steps must
    be ensured without the necessity to back-out already applied,
    but not yet post-installed maintenance, and the documentation
    must be improved to describe customisation mode and migration
    mode and emphasize on the differences.

    Formerly, there were poor indications to determine whether the
    last re-customization or migration has been implemented.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Now, the preparation status information is enhanced with the
    mode (customization or migration) for which deployment data
    has been generated and are not yet implemented.  A script
    'dnicdpst' is introduced to show whether a deployment is
    ongoing and in which mode it has been initiated.
