Migrates content. Provide the input directory from where you want to migrate or verify the content. Run the migrateContents command when the Catalog Service, Informatica Cluster Service, and the required stores are enabled. If the Catalog Service is SSL-enabled, before you migrate content, you need set the following environment variables
See the sample command to encrypt password: $INFA_HOME/server/bin/pmpasswd <password>
For example,
  • export INFA_TRUSTSTORE_PASSWORD=hx/nRWisSjnQ0zEGV3N7j1FCGFOm5RfisQxKTdf5f8Y=
  • export INFA_TRUSTSTORE=/data/Informatica/LDM1040TO1050/services/shared/security/
  • export INFA_KEYSTORE=/data/Informatica/LDM1040TO1050/services/shared/security
Note the following points before you run this command:
  • The migrateContents command requires the INFA_KEYSTORE and INFA_KEYSTORE_PASSWORD environment variables to connect to Solr and MongoDB services of Informatica Cluster Service.
  • The administrator users or users who are part of the administrator group can run the migrateContents command.
The infacmd ldm migrateContents command uses the following syntax:
LDM migrateContents <-DomainName|-dn> domain_name <-UserName|-un> user_name <-Password|-pd> password <-ServiceName|-sn> service_name [<-SecurityDomain|-sdn> security_domain] [<-ResilienceTimeout|-re> timeout_period_in_seconds] <-InputDirectory|-id> full path to backup directory. For eg. - /backup/export [<-Resume> This is to resume migrating contents from the last checkpoint available. If set to false, migration will start from scratch.] [<-Force> This is to forcefully launch another migration process ignoring the lock held by previous process.] [<-Verify> This is to verify restored data after migration is complete.]
The following table describes infacmd ldm migrateContents options and arguments:
Required. Name of the Informatica domain. You can set the domain name with the -dn option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_DOMAIN. If you set a domain name with both methods, the -dn option takes precedence.
Required if the domain uses Native or LDAP authentication. User name to connect to the domain. You can set the user name with the -un option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_DOMAIN_USER. If you set a user name with both methods, the -un option takes precedence.
Optional if the domain uses Kerberos authentication. To run the command with single sign-on, do not set the user name. If you set the user name, the command runs without single sign-on.
Required if you specify the user name. Password for the user name. The password is case sensitive. You can set a password with the -pd option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_DOMAIN_PASSWORD. If you set a password with both methods, the password set with the -pd option takes precedence.
Required. Name of the Catalog Service.
Required if the domain uses LDAP authentication. Optional if the domain uses native authentication or Kerberos authentication. Name of the security domain to which the domain user belongs. You can set a security domain with the -sdn option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_SECURITY_DOMAIN. If you set a security domain name with both methods, the -sdn option takes precedence. The security domain name is case sensitive.
If the domain uses native or LDAP authentication, the default is Native. If the domain uses Kerberos authentication, the default is the LDAP security domain created during installation. The name of the security domain is the same as the user realm specified during installation.
Optional. Amount of time in seconds that infacmd attempts to establish or reestablish a connection to the domain. You can set the resilience timeout period with the -re option or the environment variable INFA_CLIENT_RESILIENCE_TIMEOUT. If you set the resilience timeout period with both methods, the -re option takes precedence.
Full path to the backup directory. For example,
- /backup/export
Use this option to resume the migrating contents from the last available checkpoint. If set false as the value, the migration will start from the beginning.
Use this option to force launch another migration process by ignoring the lock held by the previous process.
Use this option to verify restored data after migration is complete.
