LCM should not be used to upgrade between different versions, it is only for migration between different environments in the same version.
Refer: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E17236_01/epm.1112/epm_install_1112200.pdf for upgrading from 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124.
thanks for your response.
I know the answer your giving is the theoretical answer oracle support would give me. On the other hand I used this tool succesfully to migrate/ copy IR artifacts from 931 to 126.96.36.199. So I am almost convinced it is possible to use for 188.8.131.52 too.
It looks like Orace likes to keep the real background knowledge of these utilities for it self. There is very very little information on the tool in the manuals. Which I am ure of I read them all. When a little part of the alcm changes the general public has to find solutions our self. Thats why I asked the forumpopulation to help me with it.
solved it by few extra steps.
installed quick and dirty hss/ir/raf environment 184.108.40.206 (as a migration server)
export 931 IR and WA via ALCM to files
xcopy files to 220.127.116.11 server
import via ALCM 18.104.22.168
check in webtier
export via HSS/Foundation WebUserInterface to files
xcopy to 22.214.171.124 server
import via HSS/Foundation WebUserInterface from files
