What are Projects?

Domain Migration Administrator 7.x


Domain Migration Administrator allows you to define migration projects and use these projects to perform and track migration tasks for specific sets of objects that you choose. The project wizards guide you through the migration process and help you analyze the impact of specific portions of the process. You can specify different migration settings for each migration project. You can define specific migration settings to use for each set of objects identified by a project. Projects also enable you to use data modeling and further customize the property values set for the new objects in the target domain.

You can also delegate the project definition and preparation portion of the migration process. For example, you can allow someone to define the migration project for each department without allowing that individual to perform the migration itself. You can then import the project, verify the migration settings, and perform the actual migration.

If you do not need to define a specific set of objects, you can perform individual migration tasks without using projects.

Chapter 5 in the DMA 7.1 User Guide contains a detailed explanation of Projects and how to use them in your migration.  Please refer to this material.
