    Holger,

    NetSight 6.3 has added functionality that lets you directly import devices from a Ridgeline DB backup.
    "You can also export a database backup file from Ridgeline that you can import into NetSight Console."

    This is explained in the Console documentation that you can find in the Extranet (Console User Guide)

    Hi Holger

    Here is an initial link to study this.

    https://gtacknowledge.extremenetworks.com/articles/How_To/How-to-migrate-Ridgeline-to-Netsight

    There is also a document in the help itself once you have netsight installed to facilatate the data transfer.

    Click on help in web start screen, then search all topics unfiltered and enter ridgeline like below picture.

    Thanks. i had also found this statement that it is possible to export a databse with ridgeline.

    The backup utility in Ridgeline makes a backup copy of all data in the database.

    Database utilities are found in the database\bin directory in the folder in which you

    installed the Ridgeline software. For example, if you installed Ridgeline in the

    C:\Program Files\Ridgeline, the database utilities are saved in the C:\Program

    Files\Ridgeline\database\bin folder.

    But i need to know how to do this and where to find the backup.

    Holger,

    Once the Ridgeline 4.0 backup is complete, it will be placed in 'x:\Program Files\Extreme Networks\Ridgeline 4.0\database\bin'. A folder will created as specified by the backup name and additionally a sub-folder will be created with the time and date stamp. The file within the sub-folder will be named identically but with an .sql extension. An example is as follows:

    To Backup:
    C:\Program Files\Extreme Networks\Ridgeline 4.0\database\bin>DBBackupTool.exe backup test4
    17:07:05,365 INFO [main][DBUtilityLauncher] Absolute path C:\Program Files\Extreme Networks\Ridgeline 4.0\database\bin\test4\30_04_2014_17_07_05_backup\30_04_2
    014_17_07_05_initial.sql
    17:07:07,003 INFO [main][DBUtilityLauncher] Successfully created backup in: test4\30_04_2014_17_07_05_backup

    Backup File Location:
    C:\Program Files\Extreme Networks\Ridgeline 4.0\database\bin\test4\30_04_2014_17_07_05_backup\30_04_2014_17_07_05_backup.sql

    The sql file can then be used in the migration to NetSight.

    Holger, the Ridgeline 3.x database structure is different from Ridgeline 4.0. The Migration process should be taking place from Ridgeline 4.0 SP2 to NetSight 6.2.

    Would it be possible for you to upgrade to Ridgeline 4.0 SP2, backup/export the Ridgeline 4.0 database to an SQL file, and then import the SQL file into NetSight?

    We can assist with this process if needed.

    No, thats not an option for us. we want to use netsight side by side to ridgeline and avaluate it, before wo decide if we want use netsight productive.

    I will try to scan my devices manually.

    Thanks

    Holger, you could migrate the Ridgeline 3.1 database to Ridgeline 4.0 on a separate install. This would retain the Ridgeline 3.1 install. We can also migrate the database for you and provide you the SQL file needed for NetSight. In order to do this, we will need the basecamp and epicenter db files from Ridgeline 3.1. It would be best for a case to be opened with GTAC to further proceed, if you would like us to do this.
