Migration process

The goal of sybmigrate is to provide a means to migrate all objects and user data that exist on the source Adaptive Server. However, when migration takes place, there is some server-wide data that needs to be migrated before any user data or user objects can be migrated to individual databases.

The hierarchy of objects dictates the order in which objects are re-created. Generally, server-wide objects from the master database are created first. Independent objects like default languages and character are migrated to the target server before data from individual databases.
