migrate protection manager data from old OC4 to new OV5 server

How do I migrate SMO datasets / relationships from an older DFM server to a new OC5 instance?

Can it be done?

Re: migrate protection manager data from old OC4 to new OV5 server

Hi Stephen,

     When you say old DFM server to new instance of OC5. Are they on different systems all together ?

Old DFM Server: SERVER1

New OC5 Instance: SERVER2

If your situation is  above, take a dfm backup using "dfm backup create" from SERVER1 and restore it in SERVER2 using "dfm backup restore <backupFileNameTakenInServer1>

By doing this you dont have to do anything in the SMO dataset.

If your situation is on the same server then you just have to run your OC5 installer and upgrade, which is seamless.
