we are going to migrate Essbase from 7.1.6 to 18.104.22.168 in unix environment. We have heard that we cant migrate directly from 7.X to 11.X Version. If so, then how can we proceed. Please suggest the steps to follow and documents to proceed in Unix Environment. I am new to unix environment.
Your suggestions will be more helpful...
There is no direct migration path, it may be possible to use the migration wizard in EAS to migrate the applications though this does not include data, alternatively you will need to export and copy, import as much as you can.

Thanks for your reply. John,Is it possible to migrate from 7.X to 11.X directly. Bcz, i heard like we have to migrate from 7.X to 22.214.171.124 using Migration Utility and then from 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52. can we migrate directly using Migration Utility? Will the procedure is same in Unix environment as in Windows environment? Guide us to proceed.
There is no direct migration path. As John mentioned you can copy the objects using EAS or you can copy the objects manually and move it to the new version. (EAS migration is much easier)
But my doubt is can we migrate 7.1.6 version Essbase to 11.2.2 version in a single shot? I have heard like If we want migrate 7.1.6 to 184.108.40.206
1. we have to migrate 7.1.6 to 11.1.3 and then
2. 11.1.3 to 220.127.116.11.
Will the migration utility work to migrate 7.1.6 to 11.2.2? Please suggest on this am not getting a clear clarification on this.
The EAS migration utility should work, there is no upgrade path between 7.1.6 and 18.104.22.168 so I am not sure what you are referring to.
If it is not clear on how to migrate then you should be looking at getting somebody involved who has experience with them.
