Migrating BODS XI 3.2 -> 4.2 : about central repositories


We are studying the best way to migrate our old BODS XI 3.2 to 4.2 SP4 in Windows environment.

Our repositories (local/central) are currently using MySQL 5.0 database.

We plan to use SQL Server RDBMS repositories (2008 or 2012).

Migrating local repositories is clearly described on the web so I don't have any question about this.

Concerning central repositories, I can't find a way to migrate those repositories from MySQL to SQL Server that preserves the history.

Moreover, in the Product Availability Matrix (, MySQL 5.0 is deprecated for BODS 4.2, so is it possible to use the "upgrade" tool in the new Repository Manager ?

Any idea ?

Thank you
