Migrate the version history from AEM 5.6.1 to AEM 6.1 possible?

Level 2

We want to setup a new AEM 6.1 system and transfer the content from the AEM 5.6.1 instance via content package to the new system. Is there also a way to migrate the version history to the new system? In older versions of AEM/CQ there was an Importing Tool (http://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/crx/2-3/deploying/upgrading.html#Migrating%20the%20Version%20History), does something like that exist for AEM 6.1?

I think it is not possible/is not enough to make a content package of /jcr:system/jcr:versionStorage and just install it on the new AEM 6.1 system, right?

 

Thanks!
Anne

Migrating the version history is not available.  If you want to retain the version history only option is do an inplace upgrade.

Thanks, I know. But how can I transfer content and its version history from one system to another? We don't want to do the inplace upgrade, we want to setup a new system on another machine. I think I could ask the same question for transfering content and its version history from one AEM 6.1 system to another AEM 6.1 system...

It was possible to migrate version history with CRX2[1]. I haven't tried importing it into AEM6 though!

OK, thanks for all the answers, then I have to think about an Inplace Upgrade...

Hi Anne,

it may be too late for you now, but there has been an update to the migration tools available[1], including migrating version history.
