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.
