Slow Performance During Folder Selection in Miggui

I am trying to migrate some 30,000 folders from an NSS volume on NW 6.5 SP5 server to an NSS volume on a server running OES2 SP3 on SLES 10 SP4.

Using the miggui from the OES server, I can authenticate to both servers, and select File System as the service to be migrated. Both servers show up in the list and I can expand the folders and select what I want to migrate. Now here's where I'm getting stuck: I select a subset (say 1,000 folders) and drag them to the destination. Once I let go the mouse, it sits there for hours. If I look at the target destination, a folder appears once every few minutes. What did I forget to turn on/configure in order to get this to speed up???

I saw a message that said to increase the cache values for the TSA on the source. I tried that and it didn't help. However, I'm assuming that the TSA only gets used when you actually migrate the data and not during the pre-copy checks.

Any help is appreciated!

One thing I forgot to mention is that the target server does not have a replica yet. Would that make a difference??? We've had problem with our tree when adding/removing replicas and I'm a bit nervous making some changes. However, if I have to, I'll add a replica.

$(UI tried with 10k folders drag-drop on the target and it took approximately 20 minutes to show it on the Target Server folder tree. I haven't tried it with 30k folders yet.

All you have to do is select the folder range on the source server and drop exactly on the target volume/folder. You can tailf /var/opt/novell/migration/<my_project>/log/debug.log and notice the messages like:
'<time_stamp> DEBUG - Path of folder selected /NSS Volumes/VOL1', running for every folder created on target.

If you see message in debug.log as 'Drag and drop in progress: java.awt.dnd.InvalidDnDOperationException: Drag and drop in progress', means either the drop on the target is not accurate or off the tree.
