How exactly did you perform the migration?

The ideal way to perform the migration is to leverage the Liferay Services for users and groups. this will make sure that all relevant data are in the database. The other way is to set up listeners on the tables and create users and find out which tables have updated at user creation.

Thanks a lot, Amro, you do have good idea for migration. :-)

Hi Ashok,

There is another tool you can leverage in the Liferay portal: database migration.

You can use this tool (just one click and a few inputs) to migrate data from current database into any other database like Oracle 10g/11g, DB2, MySQL. MS SQL, etc.

Hope that it helps,
