2.2 Converting Configuration Files to Packages

Before you begin the staging process, we recommend you convert any configuration files in your Identity Manager environment into packages. Packages are more portable than configuration files and enable you to move your custom policies and related content independent of the server and without overwriting any of the settings required for a particular stage.

For information about converting configuration files to packages, see Upgrading the Identity Manager Drivers in the NetIQ Identity Manager Setup Guide.
