Sometimes it is required to migrate a copy of an InfoManager repository from one IMDB to another. Because of a number of existing defects this can be problematic. This article provides details of a process which has generally been found to be successful.

Information Manager repository export functionality from management console can be used to

- create a backup of your IM metadata

- create a new IM database to be used in a different environment

- is often very useful to support for replicating IM problems.

- it can be used to manage IM metadata changes, but this is not recommended because change management is not often strictly kept.

It is best merged into a blank database.
