Switch OS ?

Kenneth Munch (13522124) | asked Feb 18 '13, 8:43 a.m.
We'd like to move our current 4.0 RTC installation from WIN to AIX.
I can't find any documentation, so I'm guessing here: export databases from WIN server....install RTC on AIX....import databases on AIX server. Or ?
Thanks in advance.

Hi Kenneth,

the situation in this case is very similar to creating a backup installing on a new system, and restoring backup data.

It depends on the DBMS if you can restore the database on the new architecture, or have to use repotools export/import to get the data into it. The latter case is described in the migrating the database described here You should check the DBMS documentation for your database.

If you do need to use repotools, also take a look at the article on optimizing this process,
