Merging two TestLink servers

Postby RvdP2012 » Thu Oct 11, 2012 2:09 pm

I searched the forum for "merge projects", but couldn't find the answer yet.

Situations is as follows: we have a central TestLink server (version 1.9.3), which is to be used by all projects. However, some of the projects still have a local TestLink server (version 1.9.3) and want to migrate to the central server. For that, they would like to export all their requirements, test cases, test plans and test results and import them on the new central Server.

Question is: what is the best way to do this (if there is any)? Is there anyone who has experience in this?

Thanks for any advice you can give,

merge is a pain.
export / import seems to be the only solution but has to be used with measure => you can not expect to export 8MB of info and import without issues.

I confirm what fman told. TL does not handle correctly big import.xml file (big export file.xml seem to be better). Even if you configure php.ini and with big values you will have issue. I have tried to import a xml file from 14 M with about 22 000 test cases, it has worked but it took nearly 15 min to load all the tests. I dont know how many tests case you have on your side... Good luck.

If u have any experience on merging two MySQL DBs, it may be another solution.
