Migration public discussion topic?

What does everyone think about creating a new “public discussion topic” (or whatever the main forum topics are called) specifically for migration from 3.x to a Windchill solution.



It is becoming apparent to me that migration of an Intralink 3.x database requires a fair amount of knowledge about Intralink 3.x, Pro/E and Windchill.



Sometimes I’m really not sure where to post question for sometimes I need info on 3.x and sometimes Windchill. I think it would be helpful for others if there were a single location for migration related posts The migration topic will be around for years (Shoot, it might take a year just to do a migration!)



Reference PTC’s forum: <u>http://www.ptc.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=10</u>

I would agree also. Should have had one started back when you had to go
from Pro/PDM to Intralink. Never would have had to shut it down with
the migration to Windchill. Of course you can almost see a trend here.
Pro/PDM --> Intralink --> Windchill --> ??? (Frostbite? ;o) ) There
will always be a need for migration it seems.

Is this really the right way to go? For example, what motivation would
Windchill users have to read and respond to questions on a migration
forum?



Although it takes some effort, would we be better off making sure our
questions are addressed to existing forums? We can probably use the
lists as follows:





* Proi - Migrator Tool; 3.x settings; clean-up of 3.x data prior
to migration

* Windchill lists - configuration of PDMLink or INTRALINK;
questions on Oracle tuning; questions on training





Does this make sense?



Thanks.

I see what you are saying, and it looks like a catch-22 either way. One
would only sign up for the migration list when they are migrating or
looking at migrating and then go to the Windchill list afterwards.
Somewhat like now, you switch from the ProI to Windchill list after you
have converted. Either way you still lose the experienced ones when
they are done switching over.

I can see some overlap with the Windchill forum because some migration
questions require information about the target system. I suppose such
questions would just have to be posted to both lists to catch those who
are in process and those who have been there, done that or already know
Windchill.

Don't we get in trouble for cross posting the same topic? Or is that
only me that gets in trouble for that.



I'm curious as to if PTC's focus is to move to Windchill based CAD Data
management, why not just have one group like the "good ole' days?" It's
going to be one someday, might as well join forces sooner rather than
later.

RE: Migration public discussion topic?

You guys bring up some good points. My thoughts were centered on searching for topics related to migration. Right now you would have to search both 3.x and Windchill looking for something related to migration.


You don’t want to be stuck posing in “migration” when someone in the Windchill topic knows the answer. Maybe we should consider “one barrel” for data management. Actually I’m not sure why I’m concerned for I’m sure the in a few short months the 3.x halls will be empty.



The 3.x halls will just be filled with cobwebs and dust once everyone migrates to Windchill. I’m sure you’ll pass an old timer from time to time chatting about .proi folders and what not. “Back in my day we didn’t have no-fancy Windchill, we did things the old-school way with Intralink 3.4. We got the job done too; twice as good as you young wipper-snappers and your web-based PLM.........”





For now I’ve been trying to post similar for Frank’s suggestion:


* Proi - Migrator Tool; 3.x settings; clean-up of 3.x data prior to migration.


* Windchill lists - configuration of PDMLink or INTRALINK; questions on Oracle tuning; questions on training.

That will be a whole heck of a lot longer than a few short months, my
friend.

RE: Migration public discussion topic?

Intralink 3.4 Folks,



PTC has identified my issue with the ProE family tables that are wiped out during migration. They say a fix will be available for M020 for the data migrator. I find it curios that the F000 and M010 versions of the migrator are no-longer available to download from PTC’s website. I wonder if other databases were seeing the issue?



I don’t see a lot of discussion regarding migrating from 3.4 to 9.0 on the boards lately. What is everyone up too? Good/bad about 9.0? Are people waiting for 9.1?



Sorry for the dual post, but I wanted to catch Intralink 3.x and Windchill 8/9 users.
