MECM Migration Tool

Hi looking for a bit of advice.

I have been asked to investigate the solution for migrating environments in the following scenario's:

  • Company A and B want to merge into one hierarchy.
  • Company A splits into two companies, the new company B has built and configured their own MECM hierarchy but now wants to reuse alot of the objects from the old MECM hierarchy.

I have been looking into the migration tool, but straight away I have hit a stumbling block... The Site Codes are the same (P01)... Does this make it a complete non starter for the migration tool, the MS article states "Caution: If you migrate data from more than a single source hierarchy, each additional source hierarchy must contain a unique set of site codes. Source and destination hierarchies also requires different set of site codes."?

If so, what other alternatives are out there other than exporting and importing a huge amount of data between environments?

    Hi, @Sumner, Ann

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.

    I'm afraid we cannot migrate data from two source hierarchy with the same site code, we may change the site code and site name by modifying the database, but it's not supported by microsoft.

    We may try to backup A and recover to new site , and then migrate B to new site.
