|Migration Tool Overview|
The All function in the Migration Tool exports existing SharePoint Discussion Board data and then imports it into a Discussion Board Plus list.
This option is appropriate for most migration scenarios.
To perform an export and import using the All function:
|1.||In the Discussion Board Plus Migration Tool, select the Import Only function.|
File Location: Enter the location where the .CMP data file is saved. The Migration Tool will also log import results to a file in this location.
NOTE: If you want the Migration Tool to delete the data file after the migration is complete, check the option Delete the data folder after migration.
|3.||Source Site URL: Enter the URL for the site where the existing SharePoint Discussion Board list is located.|
Source Discussion Board: Enter the list name of the SharePoint Discussion Board list that contains the data you want to migrate.
|5.||Target Site URL: Enter the URL for the site where the target Discussion Board Plus list is (or will be) located.|
|6.||Target Discussion Board: Enter the list name of the Discussion Board Plus list you want to migrate data to. If the Discussion Board Plus list does not yet exist in the target site, the Migration Tool will create it.|
Copy Alerts: If you want to copy SharePoint alerts from the SharePoint Discussion Board list to the Discussion Board Plus list, check the Copy Alerts option.
|8.||Ignore Web Parts: Excludes the import of Web Parts associated with list forms. Importing these Web Parts can sometimes cause problems during import and is not required when the source and target discussion boards are on the same site. Use this option if previous import attempts have failed, and only if the source and target discussion boards are on the same site.|
|9.||After completing all import settings, click Run to begin the import.|
The migration tool will import data from the .CMP file created from the existing SharePoint Discussion Board list to the target Discussion Board Plus list. SharePoint Alerts are also copied if the Copy Alerts option was checked. Migration results are displayed in the Migration Tool status window and are also logged to a file in the folder you specified in the File Location setting.
