Migration Advice needed


We are migrating from EP 6.0 SP2 to EP 7.0

The EP 6.0 is on Windows / MsSql and the target would be on Linux/oracle.

A proof of concept was attempted almost an year ago and there too many problems during the migration.

Here are the steps that were followed:

1. upgrade EP 6.0 SP2 PL 5 to EP 6.0 SP2 PL 27 on Windows

2. Export / Import into NW2004 SP09 on Windows 2003 / MSSQL 2000

3. Upgrade to NW2004S ( EP 7.0 SPS12)

4. System Copy to NW2004S ( EP 7.0 SPS12) on Linux / Oracle 10G (

Unfortunately not much documentation was maintained while the above was done and I am entrusted with repeating this for Production.

Considering that this was done almost a year back, is the new migration tool able to achieve the above in a better way with lesser downtime / problems?

It would really be wonderful if someone could share their experience with a similar migration.

Thanks much in advance
