Installing BMC Remedy Migrator for migrating delta data
Use the following procedure to install BMC Remedy Migrator. You use the Delta Data Migration Tool installed with BMC Remedy Migrator to migrate delta data.
- You must have administrator privileges for the machine on which you are installing BMC Remedy Migrator. To perform the full migration, you must install the latest version of BMC Remedy Migrator and the latest binary fix.
- Always download and install the latest BMC Remedy Migrator version available, irrespective of your current BMC Remedy AR System version, when migrating delta data.

Ensure that the mid tier is disabled and not running when migrating your delta data.
