To migrate data with the Import Export Console
Before you begin, ensure that you have the Request Catalog Manager and BMC Remedy AR System Administrator permissions.
- Prepare your destination server.
This step migrates objects and data that are used by BMC Service Request Management, but are not handled by the Import Export Console.
Export selected service request definitions (SRDs), process definition templates (PDTs), and supporting data from the source server.
To perform this step, use the Import Export Console, as explained in Exporting SRDs, PDTS, and supporting data. The export process creates an .zip file and attachments folder (containing images).
The Import Export Console only handles certain kinds of BMC Service Request Management objects and data, as explained in the Objects and data that are migrated section in Migrating BMC Service Request Management objects and data.
- Import SRDs, PDTs, and supporting data to the destination server.
Use the .zip file created in Step 2 to perform the steps in the Import Export Console. For more information, see Importing data from the Import Export Console.
