  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When performing a migration, item names which contain non-ASCII
    characters are logged with question marks in the
    post-migration-tasks report file during the transform-data step.
    This makes them difficult to identify when attmpting to complete
    the manual post migration steps.
    

Local fix

  • This problem can be worked around by changing the system's
    default encoding to one that supports the characterset you are
    migrating.
    

Problem summary

  • The post-migration-tasks report file is written using the
    system's default encoding which will scramble any unsupported
    characters.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The post-migration-tasks report file is now written using the
    persistency.encoding setting from the 5.1 aptrixjpe.properties
    file which should always corespond ot the charset of the data
    being migrated.
    

Temporary fix
