[EP-tech] problem migrating documents

Hi Thomas,

i have exported one publication with

bin/export edoc eprint XML 15166 > 15166.xml

and imported it into the new system

bin/import edoc eprint XML --enable-file-imports --enable-import-fields
--force --verbose /home/user/15166.xml

But if i export the publication from the new system, the file entry is not
in the xml file.

I think this does not overwrite the data. Or do i have to start a another
script after importing?

hard to say, depends on many boundary conditions

could work, if all paths for eprint stuff are exactly the same; 'upgrade' is
an independent issue Of course, the most easy way!

export repoID  eprint XML <badID0..badIDn> will do that by default settings

> And how can import this
import repoID eprint XML --enable-file-imports --enable-import-fields
updatedPipedExportFile overwrites even existing entries ...

Check if a correction of bad entries is useful, otherwise start from
Testing on a sandbox is _no_ bad idea :)
