Hi, we are currently upgrading from 6 to 7.0 and subsequently to 7.5 (TR, new hardware, new domain, new instance). So far we've staged our W2k3 domain and all the other soon to be ICM servers.
I'm currently trying to migrate the domain users and it tells me that I need to use the Domain Conversion Tool to go migrate the domain users from 6 to 7. (Staging guide chpter 4)
I can't find any documentation on the Domain Conversion Tool, when I run the executable I can see the different triggers (below) but that's it.
I've done an export and gotten a file but what next?
Do I do a convert now?
is the convert going to change my production database?
I'm also reading that the Domain Conversion Tool was replaced by the UMT (for 7.0 to 7.+).
Or should I now use the UMT and point it to my export file?
Im afraid to run the convert and and messing up my Rogger sideA database?
Has anybody use this tool?
any tips and or documentation is appreciated. Thanks
The syntax of this command is:
DomCvt.exe /DB:dbname /F:filename /M:mode [/OD:old domain name]
[/ND:new domain name][/P:password]
/DB:dbname Specifies the database name to operate on (e.g. cust1_sideA)
/F:filename Specifies the full path of the file to import or export to
/M:mode Indicates export mode or convert mode
E Export mode
C Convert mode
The following switches are only needed in Convert Mode:
/OD:old domain name Specifies the old domain name to convert from in NetBIOS form (e.g. MyDomain)
/ND:new domain name Specifies the new domain name to convert to in NetBIOS form (e.g. MyDomain) or DNS form (e.g. MyDomain.mycompany.com)
/P:password Specifies the default password to be set for all the users in the new domain
Use quotation marks when there are spaces in the file name or password
