Use repotools -export/import for individual project areas?


Guowei Jim Hu (1.0k810353) | asked Oct 02 '08, 9:34 a.m.
We have several teams started to setup their own Jazz servers before we get our official server setup. Now we need to migrate their stuff to our server.

Checking the repotools -export/import, it sounds like it only handles the whole Jazz database migration from one server to another instead of individual project areas located in different database on different servers.

My questions are:
1. Can we setup multiple jazz databases on the same Jazz server?
2. If we have existing project areas in our current Jazz database, can we still import another Jazz database tar file to it or it has to be empty? What happens if we have name confliction with project areas?

3. Is there a way to import from multiple jazz databases on various Jazz servers into a super Jazz database on one server?

Yes, that's exactly right.

No, each jazz instance can connect to only one database.

2. If we have existing project areas in our current Jazz database, can
we still import another Jazz database tar file to it or it has to be
empty? What happens if we have name confliction with project areas?

3. Is there a way to import from multiple jazz databases on various
Jazz servers into a super Jazz database on one server?

You cannot merge databases. The import operation must target an empty
database. If there is data in the target database, it will be dropped
before the import proceeds.

Thanks,
