fim_migrate

New in version 3.7.0.

The fim_migrate tool allows to migrate FIM databases older than Wazuh v3.7.0 to the new format included in Wazuh-DB. This tool must be executed after the upgrading process has been completed.

Note

The new database will be available at /var/ossec/queue/db.

Usage

This tool is not included in the Wazuh installation, but you can download it from the Wazuh repository on GitHub:

# curl -so fim_migrate https://raw.githubusercontent.com/wazuh/wazuh/3.7/tools/migration/fim_migrate.py

Add execution permission and run this tool on the manager instance as follows:

# chmod +x fim_migrate

# ./fim_migrate

Warning

After completing the migration process, the old FIM databases won’t be removed automatically. To do so, remove the /var/ossec/queue/syscheck folder.
