Before you begin

You can carry out this operation with both MDM servers up and running provided you have a connection to each of them in the Server Explorer panel in Talend Studio, or you can perform the export operation from the server with the XML database, stop this server, start up the server with the relational database and complete the import operation. Also note that if you want to migrate from 5.6.1 or 5.6.2 to 6.0.1 or later, you have to install a patch. To obtain this patch, contact Talend support.
Note: If you need to migrate between two databases on a single machine, you must run the two MDM servers side by side. You can do this by setting a different port binding on the target server.
