Data-Porting

By maxim_pn ·
My client has HP CAD machines running UNIX or HP's variation of it. They want me to replace these old machines with Intel P-III-based workstations running under NT. They also want me to take care of the porting / migration of entire data currently on the hard drives to the new large hard drives. How do I go about it in the most elegant, efficient & foolproof way?

Data-Porting

Assuming you just have to move the data and not translate or format it, I would suggest using FTP. You will need to decide whether binary or ASCII mode is most appropriate.

It is probably lsightly easier to set the UNIX box up as the FTP server and use the NT box as the FTP client, but you can reverse these selections.

For an FTP client, try finding a good graphical shareware program like wsftp. It will make the job a lot easier than the command line FTP in either NT or UNIX.

You an also use NFS and just copy between systems.

If you use FTP, select binary mode since I suspect the vast majourity of your cad data files are binary and not text.
