Error description

  • As per the documentation any DOORS 9.x server is compatible with
    any DOORS 9.x client so ideally there is no migration when
    moving data from 9.x to later version of 9.x.
    
    Here is the link to the Document:
    http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/doorshlp/v9r5m2/index.jsp
    under topic 'Upgrading Rational DOORS and Rational DOORS Web
    Access>Upgrading to Rational DOORS 9.5 from earlier releases of
    version 9' following information is provided:
    
    _________________
    To start the data migration, the Rational DOORS administrator
    must log in from a Rational DOORS 9.5 client and confirm that
    the data is to be migrated. No one can use Rational DOORS until
    migration is completed. The Rational DOORS client can be on the
    Rational DOORS database server computer, or on a different
    computer. If the administrator does not successfully log in, or
    does not confirm that migration is needed, no data is migrated.
    _________________
    
    Above mentioned information is not true in case of DOORS 9.x to
    9.x migration but is true in case of migrating data from earlier
    version of DOORS server to 9.x version. The Document needs to be
    updated.
