[OPEN-ILS-GENERAL] Horizon to EverGreen Conversation

Hello and thanks for reading.

I'm a Systems Admin that has been asked to setup a test environment for 
Evergreen.  I've done so on my laptop with the Vmware image available.  
Nice way to get a quick look at the program!  I'm now in the process of 
installing Evergreen on a standalone Debian server.  I'm about 1/2 way 
through the install.

I'm now thinking ahead on the conversion process.  I know very little 
about how this type of software works.  I know that the Horizon system 
currently in use is a MSSQL back end.  Although I don't understand the 
structure of the db's involved; I have migrated SQL to MySQL.  I'm 
comfortable with MySQL.  I've never used Postgres.

Can anyone advise me on how I might start looking into the migration 

What might be a good way to test Evergreen? 

Should I look at dumping the current Horizon db into my Evergreen test 

Any pointers to organizations that have already done this (Horizon -> 
Evergreen) would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Tim Jordan
