Migrating data from 2.2 to 2.5

Answered Question
Mar 20th, 2007

I want to migrate RME data from LMS2.2 to 2.5 running in a different Solaris 9 server. However in the backup there are 3 folders (cmf, dmf, rme). The migration script as far as I understood it doesn't ditinguish beetween data from CS, CM or RME.

I don't want to overwrite my current Campus Manager database since I have collected again the information. If I run the migration script, will my current CM database be lost?

I have this problem too.

Data migration from 2.2 to 2.5 will replace data from ALL installed applications. There is no way to do a selective migration. Therefore, when you do the backup from 2.2, and move the backup directory over to the 2.5 server, the restorebackup.pl script will overwrite all your data including your CM data.

May you point me to some reference stating which data related to CM and CS will be overwritten?
