[EP-tech] problem migrating documents



The bigger job is to migrate and update eprints from an old eprints version to the newest one (from one server to another). On my new server there is no file section in the xml File, even if i import a new xml file which includes a file section.

If you open the XML file, you'll see that it has a path in the file section of the document.  If you modify that path to point to somewhere local, then put a copy of the file in that place, it should work.

 

What are you actually trying to accomplish.  Is this a step in a bigger job?  What's the bigger job?

Hi Thomas,

 

i have exported one publication with

 

 

bin/export edoc eprint XML 15166 > 15166.xml

 

and imported it into the new system

 

bin/import edoc eprint XML --enable-file-imports --enable-import-fields

--force --verbose /home/user/15166.xml

 

But if i export the publication from the new system, the file entry is not

in the xml file.

 

I think this does not overwrite the data. Or do i have to start a another

script after importing?

 

Best,

Holger

what is  the best way to migrate the documents.

hard to say, depends on many boundary conditions

 

I only copied (rsync) the documents from one server to the next, 

imported the mysql database and started the upgrade with "epadmin upgrade

reponame"

could work, if all paths for eprint stuff are exactly the same; 'upgrade' is

an independent issue Of course, the most easy way!

 

How can i export all without documents?

export repoID  eprint XML <badID0..badIDn> will do that by default settings

 

And how can import this

import repoID eprint XML --enable-file-imports --enable-import-fields

updatedPipedExportFile overwrites even existing entries ...

 

Check if a correction of bad entries is useful, otherwise start from

scratch.

Testing on a sandbox is _no_ bad idea :)

 

Hand

Thomas
