  • This command, like other CLI commands, can be used from outside the cloud service virtual machine, whereas the LCM utility must be run within the cloud service virtual machine.

  • When partitions exist between cubes being migrated, you must import the data source before the data target. Otherwise, partition definitions may not be restored.
