Managed Reporting Migration Utility

We are migrating from 4.3.6 to 5.2.3. In fact my deadline is fast approaching.....

Does anyone have any experience with the migration utility for Managed Reporting. To be more specific did anyone try to load the migrate.zip file more than one time ?

I loaded it once successfully and was trying to load it a second time to include any new focexecs but it did not load anything. I've even cleaned out the basedir and tried to load from nothing - I get nothing.

I've turned this question in to IBI as well, but haven't heard back from them. If anyone has any experience with this topic - I'd appreciate any advice you can offer........

Thanks

You can run the load multiple times. If there were new fexes since the first extract, did you extract again to include them in the new migrate.zip file?

Not sure which platforms you're migrating to/from, but the Install Guides have a chapter dedicated to Migration.

from 4.3.6 to 5.2.3.....

I've tried both rerunning the original extracted file and a newly created extract file. I see the new fexes in the newly extracted file..... I've went thru the installation manual migration steps over and over......

We all know how things get left out of those manuals, so I was hoping it was something I wasn't getting cleared out or reset before a load was attempted.

Thanks for the input
