Prerequisite(s): Make sure that the MDM server is up and running.

If you have Talend Jobs in your old MDM application, do the following to migrate these Jobs:

  1. From the Integration perspective, import your local and remote Jobs as described in Upgrading the Talend projects in the Studio.

  2. Deploy the Jobs to the new MDM server one by one. For further information, see the Talend Studio User Guide.


You can also copy/paste the job scripts from their corresponding folder in the old application to the corresponding folder in the new application: <$INSTALLDIR>\jobox\deploy. But this will not import the job design that you may need at some point. Another limitation with this copy/paste mode is that it is recommended only between two MDM servers that have the same major version (first number of the unique identifier of the version). If the major versions differ, it is very likely that the MDM components will not work with the new MDM Server. If you are migrating between 2 identical versions or 2 versions where only the minor version differs, however, the copy/paste operation will be a lot faster than redeploying the Jobs.
