SIM 6.0 migration

I imported data using mximport to a new SIM 6.0 install. The collections are empty after the import. When I search for a device in the left hand pane, I find it. Only seems to be the Sytem collections that are empty. Any ideas?

I am having the exact same issue. Trying a data collection job to see if this fixes it. Will let you know.

Re: SIM 6.0 migration

was mximport successful? if yes then data is gone to some different database.
you can try again mximport with logs enabled that will tell you what n where went wrong.

Re: SIM 6.0 migration

Try looking at mx.log(at [SIM]\logs) to see if there is some authorization issue.

mximport was successful, will run the import again with logging enabled. tx

Re: SIM 6.0 migration

since the import was successful, i do not think you have to run it again.
log into SIM after doing an import and then when you click on the collection, then have a look at the mx.log
You do not have to enable anything for this

Makes any sense why the collections are still empty?

Re: SIM 6.0 migration

I ended up giving up and just manually discovered the devices and entered everything again from scratch. All working beautifully now.

Re: SIM 6.0 migration

Seems the migration tool only supports SQL 2005 SP3 / 2008 SP1 DBs. Otherwise, your collections is going to end up EMPTY.

Re: SIM 6.0 migration

Its surprising why HP is supporting just SQL DB but not oracle DB.

Re: SIM 6.0 migration

Fick,
Were you running an Oracle db? Yes, only SQL supported right now.

Re: SIM 6.0 migration

Hi Darrin, Running a remote SQL 2005 SP1 Db.
I think the problem is with the mxexport. There are a couple of errors during the export process. Maybe the collection data is not exported at all, or the source CMS system is too screwed up to complete a successful export. Please have a look at the attached. Cheers Henri.

Re: SIM 6.0 migration

Did you follow the white paper for DMT?

That out of memory issue on SIM export looks like it could be the root issue.
