Make sure that theoption is selected for the target server.
When you install OES 2015 SP1 on the target server for a Transfer ID migration and you reach the Software Selection window, you must select theoption. This prepares eDirectory for the Transfer ID migration that you will perform later.
Figure 10-1 Novell Pre-migration Server
IMPORTANT:Select theoption at the start of OES 2015 SP1 installation; otherwise, an eDirectory replica is installed on the server and it cannot be the target server for Transfer ID migration. If the target server already has OES 2015 SP1 installed, without the option selected, then selecting this option later does not prepare the target server for Transfer ID migration until you reinstall OES 2015 SP1 and select this option.
Install the services that you need to migrate from the source server.
If a service is not installed on the target server, it is not listed in the Migration Tool GUI screen for migration. This is a mandatory requirement.
Back up the eDirectory information on the target server. For information on creating a backup of eDirectory, see Backing Up and Restoring eDirectory in the NetIQ eDirectory 8.8 SP8 Administration Guide.
If the source server is a VLDB replica, then the target server also must be a VLDB replica.
NOTE:Each DFS management context allows maximum of two VLDB replicas. If your setup has a source server and a non-target server as a VLDB replica, then you must ensure to remove the non-target server as VLDB replica and make the target server as a new VLDB replica.
