Known Issues

  • SharePoint Online Importer: When importing large files into a SharePoint Online document library the import might fail due to a 30 minutes timeout defined by Microsoft. (Bug# 8043)

  • SharePoint Online Importer: Documents that have the attribute is update set to true are not overwritten during import, but a new version is created on import. Document Sets cannot be created in a library with versioning disabled. (Bug #7904)

  • Sharepoint Online Importer: The importer does not set the “Author” field of a document, if only the “Author” attribute has a rule associated to it. The user must associate rules to both the “Author” and “Editor” attribute for them to be set. (Bug #8629)

  • Sharepoint on Premise Importer: Importing documents without any specified version label results in an error. (Bug #8186)

  • Documentum Importer: Importing multiple updates of the same document that is part of a version tree containing branches may fail if using multiple threads. That is an extreme case since in the process of delta migration the object updates are migrated incrementally. (Bug #8175)

  • InfoArchive Importer: When the “targetDirectory” runs out of disk space during the zip creation, the importer fails as expected, but the zip file is not rolled back (deleted). (Bug #8758)

  • Alfresco Importer: Certain errors that may occur during import are not descriptive enough. (Bug #8715)

  • Alfresco Importer: Updating a document will result in an error if the first link of the base object needs to be removed by the update. (Bug #8717)

  • Filesystem Scanner: Folders will be ignored if multiple folder paths that begin with the same letters are used as a multivalue for the scanFolderPath (Bug #8601)

  • Remaining issues from the main release 3.2 to 3.2.5 also apply to release 3.2.6 unless noted otherwise.

migration-center 3.2.5 Update 1

  • SharePoint Online Importer: removed limitations of the number of items supported during import in the target library.

  • SharePoint Online Importer: internal name of the taxonomy terms are correctly used.

Known issues

IBM Domino Scanner:

  • The scanner requires that the temporary directory for the user running MC Job Server Service exists and that the user can write to this directory. If the directory does either not exist or the user does not have write permission to the directory, the creation of temporary files during document and attachment extraction will fail. The logfile will show error messages like

„INFO | jvm 1 | 2014/10/02 12:06:26 | 12:06:26,850 ERROR [Job 1351] com.think_e_solutions.application.documentdirectory… - java.io.IOException: The system cannot find the path specified“.

To work around this issue, make sure the temporary folder exists and the user has write permission for this folder. If the MC Job Server is started manually as a normal user then the “Temp” folder should be C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Temp. Therefore, if the MC Job Server is run as a service by the Local System account, the folder is one of the following:

For the 32bits version of Windows: C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Temp

For the 64bits version of Windows:

C:\Windows\SysWOW64\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Temp

migration-center 3.2.5

Features

  • New IBM Domino Scanner: supports scanning emails and documents from IBM Domino/Notes

  • New Sharepoint Online Importer: supports importing Lists, List Items, Documents and folders in Sharepoint Online

  • Eroom scanner: Multiple erooms can be scanned now with a single scanner configuration

Fixes

  • Scheduler: Fix a special case when the scheduler run hangs in status “Scanner running”

  • Documentum Importer: Fix a “NullPointerException” when importing VDRelation updates

Known issues

IBM Domino Scanner:

  • The scanner requires that the temporary directory for the user running MC Job Server Service exists and that the user can write to this directory. If the directory does either not exist or the user does not have write permission to the directory, the creation of temporary files during document and attachment extraction will fail. The logfile will show error messages like

„INFO | jvm 1 | 2014/10/02 12:06:26 | 12:06:26,850 ERROR [Job 1351] com.think_e_solutions.application.documentdirectory… - java.io.IOException: The system cannot find the path specified“.

To work around this issue, make sure the temporary folder exists and the user has write permission for this folder. If the MC Job Server is started manually as a normal user then the “Temp” folder should be C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Temp. Therefore, if the MC Job Server is run as a service by the Local System account, the folder is one of the following:

migration-center 3.2.4 Update 4

Features

  • Outlook scanner:

    • Extract the email address of the following recipients: To, CC and BCC

    • Extract the number of attachments in the source attribute: AttachmentsCount

migration-center 3.2.4 Update 3

Features

  • Documentum Scanner and Importer: now support the migration of aspects attached to documents and/or folders. Documentum CS and DFC 6.x or higher required.

  • New Documentum No Content Copy (“NCC”) Scanner and Importer: these customized variants of the regular Documentum adapters allow for fast metadata-only migration between Documentum, while preserving the references to content files. You can move or copy the content files separately at any point during or after the migration.

Fixes

  • Documentation: fixed several errata in SharePoint Scanner and Importer User Guides in filenames, paths and URLs used throughout the respective documents

  • eRoom Scanner: fixed the mc_content_location system rule not appearing for documents scanned from eRoom, thus preventing changes to the content file’s location to be made for import if needed

  • migration-center Client: fixed issue with import of mapping lists containing keys differing only in character case. Now these are imported and treated as distinct values correctly.

  • Jobserver: fixed issue with establishing SSL connections from Jobserver with certain combination of adapters

  • Database Scanner: fixed Unexpected error occurred during content integrity checking message when migrating data scanned with the Database Scanner to target systems with importers supporting the content integrity check feature, which the Database Scanner itself does not support.

  • File System Scanner: Extended metadata containing values longer than 4000 bytes no longer errors out. Instead, the values are truncated to the max 4000 bytes supported by mc.

  • File System Scanner: fixed extraction of creation date and owner for files with paths longer than 260 characters

  • Scheduler: fixed Oracle error when interval for a scheduler was set to “Month”

Changes

  • SharePoint Importer: The ID that is stored after a successful import of an object in id_in_target_system changed from target list specific ID to global unique ID (GUID). This change maintains compatibility with data scanned using mc 3.2.4 U1 and U2 that still uses the list specific ID

Known Issues

  • MC Client: Importing a mapping list containing identical keys will silently skip the existing key. Solution: verify mapping lists before importing them to migration-center in order to remove or rename identical keys, mapping lists must always have unique keys.

migration-center 3.2.4 Update 2

Features

  • File System Scanner: added new option to move successfully scanned files to a local path or UNC network path specified by the user. See the migration-center File System Scanner User Guide for more information on the new moveFilesToFolder parameter.

  • Installer: added option to specify location of log files during installation of migration-center Server Components. Log files were stored in the installation folder’s logs subfolder by default, now any valid local or UNC network path can be specified for storing the log files generated by migration-center during runtime. See the migration-center Installation Guide for more information about installing migration-center Server Components.

Fixes

  • Database: removed dependency on Oracle SYS.UTL_TCP and SYS.UTL_SMTP packages for performing manual/regular migration activities. Note the scheduler still requires these packages in order to function, but it is now possible to use all other features of migration-center except the scheduler without the need to have access granted to these Oracle system packages.

migration-center 3.2.4 Update 1

Features

  • SharePoint Importer: Support for importing folder objects (content type Folder and custom subtypes inheriting from Folder)

  • SharePoint Importer: Support for creating link objects (content type Link to a Document and custom subtypes inheriting from Link to a Document) (see the SharePoint Importer User Guide for more information)

  • Documentum Scanner: added “exportLatestVersions” to control the number of latest versions to scan (see the Documentum Scanner User Guide for more information)

Fixes

  • SharePoint Scanner: fixed an issue causing a "Object reference not set to an instance of an object." error during scan with certain configurations of Date and Time and Yes/No columns

migration-center 3.2.4

Features

  • New Documentum D2 Importer*: currently supports D2 4.1, including D2 specific features such as autonaming, autolinking, rule based security, applying rules based on the document’s owner. etc.

  • New SharePoint Scanner*: currently supports SharePoint versions 2007/2010/2013, extraction of Document Libraries, exclusion of selected Content Types or file types, checksum generation for verifying content integrity after import, etc.

  • New Documentum DCM Importer*: currently supports DCM 5.3, including DCM specific features such as document classes, creating controlled documents, applying autonaming rules, setting specific lifecycle states and associated attributes for imported documents. etc.

  • Updated SharePoint Importer: now implemented as a SharePoint Solution (just like the new SharePoint Scanner), simplifying deployment and improving performance, reliability and error resilience

  • Updated SharePoint Importer with content integrity check feature (comparison of checksums computed during scan and import)

  • Updated Documentum Importer: now supports importing to Documentum 7 repositories

  • Updated box Importer: now works with the box API version 2.0 for improved performance and reliability; verification of content integrity can now be performed during import based on checksums computed by the importer and box respectively

  • Updated Documentum Scanner: now supports scanning Documentum 4i repositories (via DFC 5.3)

  • New parameter for Documentum Importer to toggle whether errors affecting individual renditions should be treated as warnings or errors affecting the entire document, thus preventing it from being imported (set to ignore errors and treat as warnings by default for compatibility with previous versions)

  • New parameter for Filesystem Scanner to ignore hidden files (false by default)

  • Documentation: added new document “migration-center Database Administrator’s Guide” detailing database installation requirements (privileges, packages, etc.) and procedures for deploying mc in environments where the regular database setup cannot be run, and the database must be prepared manually by a DBA for installing the mc schema

*New adapters must be purchased separately.

Fixes

  • Scheduler: fixed an issue where a 24-hour time set was converted to 12-hour time

  • Scheduler: fixed an issue where the hourly interval was not taken into account if the scheduler was configured to run on a minutely or hourly basis

  • Documentum Scanner: fixed issue where the “scanNullAttributes” parameter’s functionality was reversed with regard to the parameter’s actual setting in the UI

  • Documentum/D2/DCM Importer: fixed an issue with the importer not properly handling certain null attribute values (in case the null value of an attribute resulted from null values returned by the If transformation function)

  • Filesystem Importer: fixed an issue causing errors when importing renditions for a selection of documents if some objects had renditions and others didn’t

  • FirstDoc Importer: fixed an issue with setting version labels in a particular case (Superseded 1.0 – Obsolete 1.1)

  • FirstDoc Importer: fixed an issue trying to delete already deleted relations

  • FirstDoc Importer: fixed objects no being rolled back in case errors occur during saving content

  • FirstDoc Importer: fixed objects not being rolled back in case errors occur during updating of ACLs and links

  • Documentation: minor corrections and additions in various documents

Changes

  • SharePoint Importer now integrates with SharePoint as a SharePoint Solution instead of the separate service component it used up to mc 3.2.3. This changes the requirements and deployment procedures for this adapter. These are described in the mc 3.2.4 SharePoint Importer User Guide

  • Database: Privilege “CREATE ANY JOB” is no longer required, “CREATE JOB” is now sufficient

Limitations

  • SharePoint Scanner only scans complete Document Library items and cannot scan individual folders currently

  • SharePoint Importer only supports versioning using contiguous numbering

Known Issues

  • Scheduler: setting a time interval (the hours during which the scheduler is allowed to run) for a scheduler configured to run on a minutely or hourly basis will not be reflected correctly in the “Next run date” displayed. The scheduler will run as configured, the issue affects only the display of next run date.

  • Remaining issues from the main release 3.2 to 3.2.3 also apply to release 3.2.4 unless noted otherwise.

migration-center 3.2.3

Features

  • New Microsoft Outlook Scanner – scan specified folders of a user’s mailbox from Outlook 2007-2010, including messages and their properties, choose to exclude particular subfolders or properties, etc. See the migration-center 3.2.3 – Outlook Scanner User Guide document for more information about this new adapter. As with all adapters, the Microsoft Outlook Scanner is available for purchase separately.

  • FirstDoc Importer now officially supports FirstDoc versions 6.3 and 6.4 (R&D)

  • Documentum Importer now supports setting rendition page modifiers and rendition file storage locations through transformation rules.

Fixes

  • eRoom Scanner: fixed an issue leading to out of memory errors when scanning large files (several hundred megabytes each)

  • eRoom Scanner: fixed an issue with the skipContent parameter not working properly in some cases

  • Filesystem Scanner: fixed an issue where the scanner could fail to scan files equal to or larger than 4GB in size

  • FirstDoc Importer: fixed a memory leak issue related to session management

Changes

  • Documentum Scanner & Importer: Changed handling of rendition page modifiers (now exposed as a dedicated system attribute that can be set using transformation rules). See the “migration-center 3.2.3 – Documentum Importer User Guide” document for more information about this feature and how it may affects renditions scanned using older versions of the Documentum Scanner.

  • eRoom Scanner: changed naming of files extracted by the scanner to the mc storage location. This has been done in order to line up the eRoom Scanner’s behavior with the rest of mc’s scanner’s, which all use an object ID rather than actual filenames for the extracted content. This should not affect the regular workflow of a migration from eRoom, as all changes are handled internally by mc and are not exposed to the user (nor does or did the user need to interact with said files at any time).

Limitations

  • The FirstDoc Importer cannot set Documentum system attributes such as creation and modify dates, creator and modifier user names, the i_is_deleted attribute, and so on. Setting these attributes is only supported using the Documentum Importer.

Known Issues

  • If a source attribute has the same name as one of migration-center’s internally used columns, the Client will display the value of the migration-center internal attribute for the source attribute as well. This occurs in Source Objects view. The issue also persists in the data exported to a CSV file if the CSV export is performed from Source Objects view. Other views or the View Attributes window will display the correct value of the respective source attribute.

  • Remaining issues for the main release 3.2 also apply to release 3.2.3 unless noted otherwise.

migration-center 3.2.2

Features

  • Documentum Content Validation – checks content integrity of documents migrated to a Documentum repository by verifying an MD5 checksum of content files before and after the import. From a Documentum source both primary content and renditions can be checked, for other sources only the primary content is supported. The feature is available as an option in the Documentum Importer. See the migration-center 3.2.2 – Documentum Importer User Guide document for more information about this feature.

  • Documentum Audit Trails – the Documentum adapters now support the migration of audit trails. The Documentum Scanner can scan the audit trails of any folders and documents within the scanner’s scope. Audit trail objects can then be added to an Audit Trail migset and processed just like documents and folders. Finally, audit trails can be imported using the Documentum Importer. The new options available in the Documentum adapters for controlling and configuring the migration of audit trails are described in the migration-center 3.2.2 – Documentum Scanner User Guide and migration-center 3.2.2 – Documentum Importer User Guide respectively.

  • The Documentum Scanner has a new option, allowing an additional DQL statement to be executed for every object within the scope of the scan. This allows additional information to be collected for each object from sources other than the document’s properties. Other database tables (registered tables) for example can be queried using this option. See the migration-center 3.2.2 – Documentum Scanner User Guide for more information.

  • The Filesystem Scanner can now build versions from additional attributes (as long as these attributes can supply the required information. Two attributes per object are required for the feature to work, which can be named arbitrarily and can be defined in the fme metadata files associated with each content file. The attributes to be used as version identifier and version number by the scanner can be specified through additional options available in the Filesystem Scanner. See the migration-center 3.2.2 – Filesystem Scanner User Guide for more information.

  • The SharePoint Importer can now update previously imported objects (if the objects had been modified in the source and scanned as updates)

Fixes

  • Documentum Importer: Fixed an issue where importing an update to a Microsoft Word 8.0-2003 document would set the wrong format for the updated document (a_content_type was set to “doc” instead of “msw8” previously)

  • Documentum Importer: Fixed an issue with importing Filesystem objects to Documentum when user defined version labels were set in transformation rules. Depending on how the labels were set, documents could end up all having CURRENT labels set, or having no CURRENT labels at all. Now the most recently imported version is always set as CURRENT, regardless of the CURRENT label set in Transformation Rules.

  • Transformation Engine: Fixed an issue where Validating a migration set would validate objects that have been already validated again, which didn’t make sense.

  • Scheduler: fixed issues where a Scheduler would stop working after several hundred runs and required to be stopped and restarted manually, or report a run as having finished with errors although there were none.

  • SharePoint Importer: Fixed an issue with the SharePoint Importer where it would set values of multiline columns as literal HTML code sometimes.

  • SharePoint Importer: Fixed an issue where during import the Comment column was set to value “Version checked in by migration-center” automatically.

  • Box Importer: improved performance and reliability when importing large files (several hundred MB)

  • Box Importer: fixed issue where the progress would indicate 100% for the entire duration of a large file being uploaded, with no actual progress being visible to the user

  • Box Importer: fixed an issue where the max number of threads allowed is set for the importer and wrong credentials are entered – this caused connections to the database to be opened but not closed, exceeding the maximum number of connections allowed by the database after some time.

Changes

  • FirstDoc Importer: Changed handling of application number from regulatory dictionary to work around issue where duplicate application numbers are used. See the migration-center 3.2.2 – FirstDoc Importer User Guide document for more information about this feature.

Limitations

  • Documentum Content Validation relies on a checksum computed during scan to compare the checksum it computes after import against. Currently only the Documentum and Filesystem Scanner have the option of computing the required checksum during scan (Documentum Scanner: main content and renditions; Filesystem Scanner: only main content). Scanners for other source systems could of course be extended to also compute a checksum during scan time which the Documentum Content Validator could use.

Known Issues

  • The SharePoint Importer and the FirstDoc Importer cannot function together due to some conflicting Java methods. Workaround: use only one of the adapters on a given machine by deleting the other adapter’s folder from the migration-center Server Components libs subfolder.

  • Same issues as for the main release 3.2 also apply to release 3.2.2

migration-center 3.2

Features

As a major feature, migration-center 3.2 provides several new adapters for various source and target systems, listed below. The interaction between scanners and importers has also been reworked, so now scanners and importers are no longer required to exist in pairs in order to work together. Instead, any scanner/importer exists as a generic, standalone adapter that can be used in combination with any other available scanner/importer, allowing for any combination of source and target systems possible using the available adapters.

The adapters available for migration-center 3.2 are:

  • Documentum Scanner

  • eRoom Scanner

  • Filesystem Scanner

  • Database Scanner

  • Documentum Importer

  • Filesystem Importer

  • Box Importer

  • Alfresco Importer

  • SharePoint Importer

  • FirstDoc Importer

Filesystem-Documentum adapters have been discontinued and replaced by generic Filesystem and Documentum adapters respectively. The new adapters perform the same while at the same time allowing interaction between any scanner and importer.

Consult the individual adapters’ User Guide documents for detailed information regarding supported functionalities and systems.

Changes and Improvements

  • migration-center 3.2 now requires the Java Runtime Environment 1.6 It will not work with older versions.

  • Filesystem-Documentum Scanner has been replaced by generic Filesystem Scanner which generates content able to be migrated using Documentum Importer or other importers to the respective target systems

  • Documentum Scanner is no longer connected to the Documentum Importer and generates content able to be migrated using other importers as well

  • Filesystem-Documentum Importer has been replaced by generic Documentum Importer which can accept and import content from any scanner, including filesystem or Documentum sources

  • Documentum Importer: improved performance for importing large numbers of Virtual Documents by up to 15% by skipping some unneeded processing

  • Documentum Scanner: content files are now written to the export location by using the Windows/DOS extension corresponding to the respective formats instead of the Documentum format name used previously. This is necessary to facilitate interaction between the Documentum Scanner and various importers targeted at other content management systems that rely on the Windows/DOS extension to work properly.

  • Documentum Scanner has a new “skipContent” parameter - enabling it skips extraction of the actual content, thus saving time during scan. The feature is intended to be used for testing or other special purposes; not recommended to enable for production use.

  • Filesystem Scanner can now detect changes to external metadata files as well instead of just the main content file and can add the updated metadata as an update to the object. This is useful for scenarios where the content is expected to change less frequently than the external metadata files.

  • Filesystem Scanner now also supports reading external metadata for folders, providing the same functionalities as for file metadata.

  • Filesystem Scanner has a new “ignoreAttributes” parameter – this allows defining a list of unwanted attributes that should be ignored during scan. This mostly applies to attributes coming from external metadata files of from extended metadata from the files’ contents

  • Filesystem Scanner has a new “ignoreWarnings” parameter – this allows scanning documents even if some of their metadata (owner or creation date) cannot be extracted or if the external metadata file is missing. Use only if that kind of information is not critical for the migration, and/or would otherwise cause too many files to be skipped.

  • Client/Transformation Engine: system attributes are no longer available to be associated on the “Associations” page of the “Transformation Rules” window. These are used automatically by the respective importers and did not need to be associated anyway

  • Client/Transformation Engine: set default rule to be pre-selected in the “Get type name from” drop-down list on the “Associations” page for all the different object types (user can of course change the selection if desired)

Fixes

  • Documentum Scanner: fixed an isolated issue where a particular combination of scanner parameters, source attribute values and objects without content would prevent such objects from being scanned

  • Documentum Importer: fixed an issue where adding a new version of a document with less values for a repeating attribute than the previous version had for the same repeating attribute would keep the previous version’s repeating attribute values which exceeded the number of attribute values present in the currently added version

  • Documentum Importer: fixed an issue where an underscore character (“_”) in a rendition file’s path was interpreted as a page modifier separator, leading to unexpected errors. Now the “_” character’s role as a page modifier separator correctly applies to a rendition’s filename only, not its entire path

  • Documentum Importer: fixed an issue where the CURRENT version label was not updated correctly in case an object and updates of that object were imported together

  • Documentum Importer: fixed an issue where updating folder objects during import would not clear empty attributes in case those attributes had values different from null before the update.

  • Filesystem Scanner: fixed an issue where the modification date for folders would not be scanned

  • Filesystem Scanner: removed “content location” value for folder objects added previously by scanner since folders do not have content of their own. This does not influence functionality.

  • Filesystem Scanner: fixed error extracting extended metadata from PDF files

  • Filesystem Scanner: fixed some discrepancies with object counts in log files when scanning updated objects

  • Transformation engine: a multi-value rule is now validated against the multi-value setting of the attribute it is associated with, so trying to set multiple values for an attribute defined as single value for example will now throw a validation error.

  • Client: fixed an issue where the Object History feature did not return results at all under certain circumstances

  • Client: fixed multiple minor issues related to focusing and scrolling in various grids/lists

Limitations

  • Database: installation of the Oracle database schema can only be performed with the “sys” user

  • Database: multiple mc database schemata are not supported on the same database instance

  • Database installer: avoid running the database installer from folder locations containing “(“ or “)” characters in the path

  • Documentum Features: Cabinets: dm_cabinet objects currently cannot be represented as individual objects in mc, hence mc cannot store or set specific attributes for cabinets eitheri

  • Documentum Features: Cabinets: mc cannot migrate empty cabinets (i.e. dm_cabinet objects with no other objects linked to it) for reasons stated abovei

  • Documentum Features: Relations: support for migrating dm_relation type objects is limited to relations between dm_document and dm_folder type objects (and their respective subtypes)i

  • Documentum Features: Virtual documents: the snapshot feature of virtual documents is not supportedi

  • Documentum Scanner: for the DQL query to be accepted by the scanner it must conform to the following template: “select r_object_id from <dm_document|subtype of dm_document> (where …)”. Other data returned by the query or object types other than dm_document (or its subtypes) is not supported.

  • Documentum Scanner: the ExportVersions option needs to be checked for scanning Virtual Documents (i.e. if the ExportVirtualDocuments option is checked) even if the virtual documents themselves do not have multiple versions, otherwise the virtual documents export might produce unexpected results. This is because the VD parents may still reference child objects which are not current versions of those respective objects. This is not an actual product limitation, but rather an issue caused by this particular combination of Scanner options and Documentum’s VD features

  • Documentum Scanner: scanning dm_folder type objects using the DQL option is not supported currently.

  • Documentum Importer: the importer does not support importing multiple updates of the same object in the same run (or the base object and of its updates). Every update of an object must be imported in different runs (this is how it would happen during normal conditions anyway)

  • Update migration: Objects deleted from the source will not be detected and the corresponding target object will not be deleted (if already imported)

  • Update migration: whether a source object has been updated is determined by checking the i_vstamp and r_modify_date attributes; source objects changed by third party code/applications which do not touch these attributes might not be detected by mc

  • Client: the client application does not support multi-byte characters, such as characters encoded with Unicode. This does not affect the migration of such information, but merely limits the Client’s ability to display such values on screen; multi-byte characters are supported and processed accordingly by migration-center’s Database and Server components, which are the components involved in the actual data processingi

  • eRoom Scanner: scanning updates of eRoom objects is not supported currently; this also applies to newly added versions to a previously migrated object. Only newly created objects will be detected and migrated. This is due to the way eRoom handles object IDs internally, which prevents mc from correctly detecting changes to versioned objects. The full functionality may be implemented in a future release.
