All data from CE 4 must be exported so that the appropriate data can be imported into Blackboard Learn. This process is completed using the System Integration API’s ep_api.pl command. The resulting snapshot.xml file will be used in each of the import steps in the upgrade process.
Complete this procedure using the command line on the CE 4 server.
- Log in to the CE 4 server with system administrator privileges.
- Create a directory for your migration data using the following command.
- Navigate to the ims directory using the following command.
- Export the CE 4 data to a snapshot.xml file using the following command.
./ep_api.pl export snapshot /tmp/migrateToLearn/snapshot.xml
ep_api.pl export snapshot c:\temp\migrateToLearn\snapshot.xml
