Unattended conversion using command-line parameters

Before using the Conversion Tool, it is important to make the following preparations:

  1. Upgrade your Ivanti Automation environment to version 10.2 or higher.
  2. Make a back-up of your Datastore before running the Conversion Tool.
  3. Take all Dispatchers offline.
  4. Close all Consoles and Management Portal windows. Consoles and the Management Portal must not be (re)opened during conversion of the Datastore.

Please note, that once the conversion of either the Database Main Tables or the Database History Tables has started, the process must not be interrupted until it has completed.

After the preparations have been completed, you can start the Conversion Tool from the command line. The following command-line parameters are available:
