Hi,

I do have a doubt, that in liferay 6.1 how can we migrate from file system or advanced file systen to DB store as in Control Panel -> Server Administration -> Data Migration we do not get the option for DBStore in the dropdown.

Is it possible to achieve data migration from File Systen to DB store.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Sudhanshu.

Hi Sudhanshu,

I'm also looking into this and came across this case - http://issues.liferay.com/browse/LPS-25055?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#issue-tabs

Which means unless you have EE, you'll have to use the current 6.2.0 in testing or wait until GA release.

Yes, fortunately we are running EE and were able to get a patch from support to allow the migration. For our 9000+ documents we had uploaded to the JCR store, the conversion took just over 4 hours, so it wasn't the quickest process, but it seems to have worked.

Before we received the patch, I tried to trick the system by altering one of the values in the migration tab dropdown to the DBStore class... it seemed to do something and gave the "change your dl.store.impl to..." message afterwards, but doing so and restarting Tomcat caused a ton of issues.
