    Would you have a breakdown of how the host change move works in SUM 1.0 SP21? I am in the middle of a Hana/OS migration of the ERP server. The source system DT export has already finished. However, the destination is only running 1 package while over 300 packages are not completed. In the destination SUM directory, I don’t see anything is missing on the migrate_dt directory compared to the source SUM. However, the import was not run on these packages.

    What drives the destination DT import and how SUM keeps track of what packages to load or not? In the old world of migration monitor, there is a property file that keeps track of the loading status of packages. Is there such a concept in SUM?

    I found the new SUM/DMO a total blackbox. Please help.

      Hi Jonathan,

      Yes, there’s a control for all the package that needs to be imported. I can’t recall as i don’t have the directory/system with me now. What you can do is browse through *dt* or the *log* directories.

      Apart from that, you can analysis the log files on why there’s only 1 package is running, you should get some hints.
