For the IBM FileNet Content Manager product family, FileNet Deployment Manager (FDM) is a powerful tool that can be used effectively and efficiently to move business data from one FileNet Content Manager environment to another. Planning and testing are key elements to a successful data migration process. A Technical Notice (FAQ) document giving an overview for using the tool is now available.
This FAQ provides tips in the areas of:
planning the data migration
effective use of export include options
approaches to mediate issues that might be encountered during the import
It is important to become familiar with these techniques because as of the P8 5.2.0 release, use of FileNet Deployment Manager for export manifest creation, as well as the export and import operations, replaces the use of FileNet Enterprise Manager for those operations.
