Preparing for the Repository Migration
Migration occurs between one server and another. Therefore, make sure the developers check in their projects from their local databases back to the server before the migration. After migration begins, developers must not make any more changes—such changes will be lost.
Before migrating the repository you also need to stop all server tasks on the target environment and disconnect database access until the migration is complete.
NOTE: If testing in the test environment reveals problems, these problems can be corrected either in the development environment (and the changes migrated again) or in the test environment.
