Re: Windchill Bulk Migrator 4.0 Discussion Page

I can't to migrate the metacontent, can you help?

Re: Windchill Bulk Migrator 4.0 Discussion Page

Can you describe the situation a little bit more? Some details would be great. Thanks!

Re: Windchill Bulk Migrator 4.0 Discussion Page

Hello Windchilists!

WBM realy very great product!!! I know people how try to write similar software for migrate from old another DB to WC, and get only BIG problems.

I had done migrated content metadata already after I updated manually targetSite row in staged tabe, I don't understand why WBM 4 didn't execute update of targetSite row.

Now I understand how to migrate all objects from one WC to another WC.

Some additional question:

How to solve conflict situation, when I want to migrate big BOM (10000 items) with EPM Documents, and want that some objects used (WTPart, EPMDocument) from target WC, and didn't create?

Thanks.

hi Ivan..

Is there a possibility that you could share your efforts with WBM with us...like how you did it.

I'm familiar with the architecture and done content migration myself...however, I have some problems with contents. I'm trying to streamline the understanding of using WBM.

Is there a document or worknotes you wish to share?

Thanks,

Wasim

Re: Windchill Bulk Migrator 4.0 Discussion Page

For content you must:

  1. Execute com.ptc.windchill.migration.wbm.preloadvalidator.ui.PreLoadValidationManager for ContentMetadata
  2. Resolver all problems from PreLoadValidationManager tables and views.
  3. I don't now why but before I didn't execute command update  CONTENTMETADATA set TARGETSITEURL='http://source_host/Windchill/servlet/WindchillGW' where migrated!=9; migration didn't work. I understand this after analize executed SQL scripts from WMB log. (I use source Oracle and target SQL Server DBs)
  4. windchill com.ptc.windchill.migration.wbm.DataLoadController -pre CONTENTMETADATA WTDocument
  5. windchill com.ptc.windchill.migration.wbm.DataLoadController -l CONTENTMETADATA WTDocument (WTDocument must to be loaded)

If you interested we can try to speak by skype.

Hi Ivan,

Do you happen to know what are the tables which keep information about the data normalized (or failed during normalized). I am looking for the flag details and where are they stored.

I've gone through the 'wbmldrdbobjstatus' and 'wbmldrstatus' tables, but not much help.

I need to understand the architecture of the tables used while normalizing data from both staging schema as well as windchill schema.

Any help on this would be deeply appreciated.

Thanks,

Wasim

Re: Windchill Bulk Migrator 4.0 Discussion Page

Hi all,

I have a number of extracted files from WBM that I must convert into load files without using any of WBM's functionalities. Does any one know an easy way of doing this or will I have to write code to solve this problem?

Thanks!

Re: Windchill Bulk Migrator 4.0 Discussion Page

This would be a great subcommunity to add and propose to PTC moderators.

Re: Windchill Bulk Migrator 4.0 Discussion Page

Yes, David that would be great- do you know how we would go about doing that? I'm relatively new here
