Migrating common metadata
Use these procedures to migrate common metadata assets. You need to export the common metadata assets that are on the source computer, and then import the assets to the target computer to complete the migration.
When you export common metadata, you can include any data connections to the databases, data files, or data file folders that you export. Alternately, you can export the data connections separately by type.
istool export -dom domain_name:port_number -user user_name -password password -ar path_to_archive_file -cm '/host_name/datafile_folder_path/datafile_folder_name/*.rcn'
The second command exports data connections for databases:
istool export –dom ABC:9443 –u user1 –p pass1 -ar "c:\myarchive.isx" –cm '/host1/c:\mydatafile_folders/data/*.rcn'
The third command exports data connections for data files:
istool export -dom domain_name:port_number -user user_name -password password -ar path_to_archive_file -cm '/host_name/database_name/*.dcn'
InfoSphere DataStage data connections are moved when you use istool commands for InfoSphere DataStage, InfoSphere Information Server Manager, or the InfoSphere DataStage Designer to move InfoSphere DataStage projects.
istool export -dom domain_name:port_number -user user_name -password password -ar path_to_archive_file -cm '/host_name/datafile_path/datafile_name/*.fcn'
You export assets by using the version of the istool command-line that corresponds to your source computer. You import assets by using Version 11.7 of the istool command-line.
The metadata related to each database is exported into a separate XMI file within the ISX archive file. When you import the metadata in the archive file, each XMI file is imported separately.
istool export -dom domain_name:port_number -user user_name -password password -ar path_to_archive_file -cm '/*/*.db'
