Exporting Notification Server 6.x data to a data store file
ITMS 6.x Migration
When you migrate to Symantec Management Platform 7.5, you use the Symantec Notification Server Migration Wizard to migrate Notification Server 6.x data. When you use the migration wizard, one step in the migration process is to export the 6.x data to a data store file. By default, the data store file is saved in the C:\Program Files\Altiris\Upgrade\Data directory. It has an .adb extension, is easy to copy and back up, and is not dependent on SQL.
When the migration wizard runs in export mode, it uses exporters to export data. Each product that has data to migrate has its own set of exporters. By default, the migration wizard exports all of the data. Symantec recommends that you use the default setting to export all of the data.
When you export data, additional data migration files may be created and saved in this same directory. For example, when you export locally saved software package files, a PackageFiles folder is created that contains folders for all of the package files.
To export Notification Server 6.x data to a data store file
Install and run the migration wizard on the 6.x Notification Server.
After the migration wizard is installed on the 6.x Notification Server, it starts in export mode. You can also manually run NSUpgradewizard.exe to start the migration wizard manually. The migration wizard EXE is in the C:\Program Files\Altiris\Upgrade directory by default.
