    Copy All the Old Projects from Editshare (Shared Storage) to the New ISIS 5500

    Hi Guys,

     

    We had Editshare , its also the Shared Space for Media Projects and now we have Bought Avid ISIS and wants to start work with Avid ISIS 5500 In the Future.

     

    but Before Doing it we need to copy All the Old Projects from Editshare Shared Space to AVid ISIS Workspace.

    I know we can just mount both the Spaces and Just do simple copy but any New Thought will be good to know.

     

    We have MAC OSX as client PC.

     

    Thanks

    Between ISIS ssytems theres a neat Migration tool that will rebuild the workspace and all that.

    No help to you.

    Are you moving projects or Projects and media?

    Projects is fairly simple depending how you arrange your ISIS.Media is a bit more complex depending how much you have.

    Yes I've heard of people using RSync and similar.

    It should be straight forward.

    I'd move a small project and media over first and then testthats all ok.

    The only issue maybe how you will connect both storage spaces to the same workstation?

    I'd proably use local storage as an inbetween.

    Yes if you can't have the editshare and the ISIS client running at the same time. Run the editshare one. Copy to a large local drive or array. Then switch to the ISIS client and copy from the local storage to ISIS

    I believe you can have both the ISIS and EditShare client mounted on the same computer. What type of MediaSpace were you using?

    Were you using this with Media Composer? If so depending in the MediaSpace type the folder structure might be incorrect.

    Hi BobRusso,

    So i have Three different kind of Workspace,

    1: Avid Projects: (For All the Projects files.)

    2: Avid_Shares (Where all the user settings are saved.)

    3: As per Calendar week (Every Week New Workspace).

     

    so i have Copied with Rsync with this COmmand

    rsync -avxH /source /dest

    and everything looks the same and also my Editors are Working today with ISIS Instead of Editsahre. so to me Folder struce also looks Fine.

     

    thanks for your THought.

    Thats great. Nice when things work so smoothly.

    Does you ISIS have a dual System Director? Is it set for failover?

    Just curious.
