Problem: 

How to migrate an existing region from native Enterprise Server to ES.NET?

Resolution:

Use the following steps to reuse existing resource definitions of any existing ES installation.

Note: these steps may differ slightly depending on the specific environment/setup: 

  1. Open an Enterprise Server command prompt.
  2. Go to the directory where the current DFHDRDAT (Resource Definition file) resides. 
  3. Create a command file with these contents:
    @echo off cls echo Exporting Resource definitions of current Region Environment.
    echo. 
    casrdtex /v /ue:dfhurdexxml /ip.\ /o.\OwnRegion.RDEFexport.xml /i /g /x /e /l /s /f /d /z /t /y /m
    echo.
    echo Converting resource Definition Export to ES.Net.Config format...
    echo. seerdfconv -in:.\OwnRegion.RDEFexport.xml -out:OwnRegion_RDEF.config
    echo.
    echo. Any key to exit.
    pause >nul
  4. (In above command file, change OwnRegion into the real region name)
  5. Execute the created command.
  6. Create a new region in ES.Net using the OwnRegion_RDEF.config as input.

The SEERDFconv parameters described, can be found in the online documentation.
