MIGRATION


IMPORTANT NOTE

If there are problems with the migration, the migration process has been designed so that it can be repeated as many times as you like without losing any data.

The process involves exporting the database of the source system, importing it into the new system, and modifying it accordingly. To do this, there must be sufficient free space in the file system – both in the directory specified as the target directory for temporary files during the migration, and on the hard disk onto which the database will be re-imported.

Please therefore ensure that the file system in question has sufficient free space. If it does not, the migration will fail.

The process described here cannot be used for KIX Pro in exactly the same way because KIX Pro has additional components installed compared to KIX.


MIGRATING FROM THE ((OTRS)) COMMUNITY EDITION TO KIX

It is very simple to change over from a traditional ((OTRS)) Community Edition to the new KIX service system. To do so, it is important that

  • the ((OTRS)) Community Edition system is running with ((OTRS)) Community Edition Version 5.

  • the ((OTRS)) Community Edition system is using the same database management system as KIX

  • the following packages have been installed in the ((OTRS)) Community Edition

    • FAQ

    • GeneralCatalog

    • ImportExport

    • ITSMCore

    • ITSMConfigurationManagement

    • ITSMIncidentProblemManagement

There are then only a few steps to complete as the administrator. The migration itself is carried out automatically by a corresponding migration script (/opt/kix/scripts/migrate_otrs2kix.sh).

Once KIX has been installed, a description of the specific migration steps and the procedure can be found in the file /opt/kix/MIGRATING_OTRS.md. Please simply follow the instructions given there.
