How to keep the Journal and Notification before upgrade to IBM Sterling Connect:Express for Windows version 3.1.0
The structure of the journal file has changed with IBM Sterling Connect:Express for Windows version 3.1.
When upgrade occurs to version 3.1, the journal is completely reinitialised and emptied.
Verify that the information about requests in the current journal are not needed any more before performing an update because the journal file is automatically reinitialised and emptied at the first start of the monitor.
The records that were present in the journal before the upgrade are lost, even in case of a hot restart of the monitor.
The contents of the journal can be unloaded into a text file by using the cxcmd command before upgrade.
