Migrating existing data exchanges to Atrium Integrator

BMC Atrium Integration Engine (AIE) has been replaced by Atrium Integrator(AI) for BMC CMDB verisons 8.1 and later. 

The Atrium Integration Engine to Atrium Integrator Migration Tool enables you to automate the migration of your existing BMC Atrium Integration Engine data exchanges to corresponding jobs or transformations in Atrium Integrator. The AIE to AI Migration Tool is installed when you install the Atrium Integrator server or Atrium Integrator client and is used to move jobs from one server to another. 

Note

The migration tool must be used only if you are upgrading from 7.6.04 version to later versions of BMC CMDB, and only if the automatic process of job upgrade failed or did not complete successfully. Otherwise, it is not necessary to use this tool to migrate data.



If you use BMC Atrium Integration Engine in your production environment, you might have configured multiple data exchanges to transfer data from external data stores to BMC Remedy AR System forms or to BMC CMDB. To improve performance while transferring a large amount of data, you might have also set up multiple instances of BMC Atrium Integration Engine. In Atrium Integrator, all migrated data exchanges run under a single Carte server.

After you have migrated the data exchanges to a single Atrium Integrator server, you can open multiple sessions of BMC Atrium Integrator Spoon to run different jobs. Each BMC Atrium Integrator Spoon session is a different process. If you have multiple Carte servers (server group installation), you can run the job pointing on a specific Carte server. 


The following figure illustrates the AIE to AI Migration Tool workflow. 


The data exchange migration by using the AIE to AI Migration Tool involves the following tasks:

  1. Getting exchanges from the source BMC Atrium Integration Engine server
  2. Testing connections with the target Atrium Integrator server
  3. Migrating exchanges 

The following table describes the stages for migrating existing data exchanges from BMC Atrium Integration Engine to Atrium Integrator using the AIE to AI Migration Tool.

    Hi,

    Can you tell me if this tool works to migrate 7.6 EIE data exchange configuration (oracle db) to AI 19.08 (mssql)

    Many Thanks Stephen

      Hi Stephen,

      Yes, it works to migrate 7.6 AIE data exchange configuration to AI 19.08. The AIE to AI tool is installed with Atrium Integrator installation.

      Thank you!

      Regards,
      Maithili
