Using webcenter, after migrating from to


When having Webcenter First moved the policy store to database from OID.

During this process manually created the datasource, and used this datasource, OPSS-DS, to re-associate Policy Store from OID to DB.

Later, while doing the Webcenter upgrade from to, during the upgrade process, after running the reconfiguration in the domain, using reconfig.sh, a new data source is created, opss-data-source, for the OPSS schema.

After finalize the whole procedure, there are two data-sources:

- One created for policy re-association purposes

  Data Source Name: OPSS-DS
  JNDI Name: jdbc/OPSS_DS
  OPSS Schema: TST01_OPSS

- Another one data-source created by the system during the reconfiguration steps.

  Data Source Name: opss-data-source
  JNDI Name: jdbc/OpssDataSource
  OPSS Schema: TST01_OPSS

The jps-config.xml and config.xml configuration files, point to the data source: opss-data-source, created during the reconfiguration steps.

Additionally, the OPSS schema seems to be properly migrated, the SCHEMA_VERSION_REGISTRY query shows12. version and VALID yes.

After all of this, can be the OPSS-DS data source deleted?
