Getting 'Unable to find META-INF/map.ser' error message when importing 5.3 RAP into 7.1.8
I am getting the following errors when attempting to import a 5.3 RAP file into a new 7.1.8 instance. This is a non-standard upgrade. We are trying to stage a 7.1.8 instance with rule sets that provide enterprise-wide services, such as web services and agents in support of other PRPC instances. There are no work objects or flows in this instance.
Previously, I had a confirmation from Pega Support that 6.1 rule sets can be imported into 7.1.8 (SR-131541). Can you advise if 5.3 rule sets can also be imported directly into 7.1.8? My 5.3 instance is:
Thanks for the reply. I'm not sure I follow your suggestion. This is a non-standard upgrade and we are importing 5.3 skimmed rule sets into a new 7.1.8 install. We have successfully imported 6.1 skimmed rule sets into a new 7.1.8 install. But the 5.3 import gets the error above.
I don't see where the database scripts would be needed in this instance, since it's already 7.1.8.
Yes, you should be able to import 5.3 archives into 7.1.8. Check to make sure the archive is not corrupt (e.g. open it with 7zip or similiar utility). If you still have problems, you should contact Customer Support.
