Hi,

I have to migrate the data/assets from our exiting RAM instance to a newly created RAM (7.2.0.2).

The source RAM instance/DB is in India and the destination is in US.

Is there any documentation on migration?

Is someone has already done this - can you share instructions/documents/experiences?

Thanks,
Ved.

The easist thing would be to make a database backup from your existing
RAM instance, and a backup of the Persist area, and go to your new
machine and load the database backup into the new DB2 and install the
Persist area backup. Then just point your new RAM to these restored
backups and do the migration.

There are several approaches that can be taken to load assets into a RAM repository.


1. Use the Eclipse Batch Task:

That is designed for a RAM to RAM move, and a File System to RAM move .... it allows you to map/define the communities/types etc.

2. Extend 1. for a files system: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/ramhelp/v7r2m0/topic/com.ibm.ram.doc/topics/t_extend_batch_api.html

3. Scripting using Ant:

4. Use libraries http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/ramhelp/v7r2m0/topic/com.ibm.ram.web.doc/topics/c_libraries.html
