The repository migration process differs based on several selections made during the running of the repository migration configuration utility. Depending on your selections, some preparatory tasks may be required before running this utility.
See Figure 1 for a high-level view of the repository migration utility screen flow based on the different source repository selections.
The target environment status selection allows the administrator the option to import the repository while the target Siebel application is online, which lessens the downtime of the target environment.
Selecting this option allows the administrator to run a repository migration process—a portion of which does not require the target environment to be offline—until it is absolutely necessary that the target environment be shutdown. At that point during the repository migration process, a dialog box appears informing the administrator to shut down the target environment for the remainder of the migration.
The schema changes selection allows the administrator the option not to run the schema migration portion of the repository migration process, which lessens the amount of time required for the migration process.
Selecting this option allows the administrator to skip the schema upgrade portion of the repository migration process if there are no changes to apply to the target's physical or logical schema. Examples of schema updates include the addition of an extension column to an existing table or the addition of a new extension table.
