Overview of the data migration tool
The data migration tool assists in migrating reference and fact data for PerformancePoint Server Planning applications. This tool may be limited according to how complex the application or application design is. The data migration tool is designed to aid organizations with data migration and is not a complete solution for every situation, in all environments.
The major steps to migrate a PerformancePoint Planning application to a new destination are:
Export from a source system
Import to a destination system
Migrate the data
Load the import workflow, security, and reports data
Deploy all model sites in the destination system
Bring the migrated application online
Verify the application migration
This tool covers the process of migrating of the data.
Before you use the tool
We recommend that you make a backup of your databases before you start this process. You must perform the following steps before you can run the tool:
Grant, at a minimum, the following permissions for the user running the data migration tools:
Data Administrator permissions to the application
Data reader role on the application database
Database owner permissions on the staging database
Install the Planning Command Utility (PPSCmd.exe ) on the same computer on which the tool is being run
Register the Staging database with the Planning application
Check that the Service Identity (SI) account has database owner privileges on the Staging database
This tool is currently designed for the initial data migration only. It could be used for incremental migration but may produce unexpected results.
When the tool starts, you are presented with the following dialog box, in which you must enter certain values, denoted by <> in the image, before you can prepare or load the data.
While the tool is running, The Status box describes each step that is being performed. If there is an error, the tool stops at that point, displaying the function that it was running when the error happened. Once the error has been corrected, you may have to restart the process.
After you use the tool
After the tool has run, you are ready for the next step: loading workflow, security, and reports data. See Operations Guide for Planning Server for more information.
