Customer is using Operations Manager 3.4.1 on Solaris. He is now considering the migration from Solaris to Windows platform with DFM 3.8 ( or 3.7).
1. Backup dfm database on Solaris
2. Restore dfm database on Windows
Is this method supported? I can't find out good documentation about this.

I did my migration from Solaris to Linux, but stayed on dfm 3.7.1 for now, last week and backup / restore is as documented in the release notes the method to use.

Just to note it here as well (and I'm assuming it's what prompted the question), as of Operations Manager 3.8 Solaris is no longer supported (Windows and Linux are the only options).
