MIGRATION FROM OTRS TO KIX 18
The migration is designed in such a way that it can be repeated as often as desired without data loss, should problems occur.
For this purpose, the database of the source system is exported and re-imported into the new system and adapted accordingly. This requires sufficient space in the file system, on the one hand in the directory that is specified as the target directory for temporary files during the migration, and on the other hand on the hard disk where the database is re-imported.
Therefore, please ensure that sufficient space is available in the respective file system. Otherwise the migration will fail.
The procedure described here cannot be transferred 1:1 to KIX Pro, as additional components are installed compared to KIX.
MIGRATION FROM ((OTRS)) COMMUNITY EDITION TO KIX
It is very easy to switch from a classic ((OTRS)) Community Edition to the new service system KIX. As a prerequisite it is important that
- the ((OTRS)) Community Edition system runs on ((OTRS)) Community Edition Version 5.
- the ((OTRS)) Community Edition system uses the same database management system as KIX.
- the following packages must be installed in the ((OTRS)) Community Edition must be installed
After that, only a few steps have to be carried out as administrator. The migration itself is carried out automatically by a corresponding migration script (/opt/kix/scripts/migrate_otrs2kix.sh).
The concrete description of the migration steps and the procedure can be found in the file /opt/kix/MIGRATING_OTRS.md after the installation of KIX. Simply follow the instructions.
