DMA backup process is completed. The results are : Backup - Successful. Validation - Failed

[06:47:26 PM] Failure, Windows-based W1 Migration Verification

[06:47:56 PM] modExportDatabase=Failure

[06:47:56 PM] Could not complete database processing successfully.

[06:47:56 PM] Failed to verify Cisco CallManager database and directory backed up data.

[06:47:56 PM] The database and/or directory cannot be migrated as they are.

[06:47:56 PM] Correct the database and/or directory information and run DMA again.

This is a very generic error msg and only means that Database Validuation failed. Have you tried used the latest version of DMA and did that also have the same result. Try using the Latest 5.1.X version of DMA and if that also failed with the same error msg, please attach the IDSInstall file to this thread

Thank?s Rob

I already saw east document and the error that to my it gives me is not none of these, but I help myself to find the same one. My error is the -499 and when I want to make the migration gives a fatal error and it cannot continue.

I am going to continue investigating on my problem.

Thank again

Hi, u have the same problem migrating from 4.1 to 6.0

I open a TAC Case and we fall on the bug CSCse53281

Search for the delete.csv file on ccm/csv/ from the .tar file that makes the DMA.

And run the installation again, this problem was only found on the ccm 5.x migration but i suffer it on 6.x so i never found the bug when i searched for it.

Good luck
