Product: FMDataMigration 17.0.1.143 MacOS

OS: MacOS 10.12.6

 

How to replicate:

MyMac:ClientFolder ThisUser$ FMDataMigration -src_path NL/MyFile.fmp12 -clone_path Clone/MyFile.fmp12 -clone_account Developer -clone_pwd MySecret -ignore_fonts -ignore_valuelists -ignore_accounts -v

The result will be:

FMDataMigration 17.0.1.143 (04-12-2018)

Source file: "NL/MyFile.fmp12"

Source account: "Admin"

Clone file: "Clone/MyFile.fmp12"

Clone account: "Developer"

Target file: "NL/MyFile migrated.fmp12"

Force overwrite: Off

Ignore value lists: On

Ignore accounts: On

Ignore fonts: On

Couldn't open the source file because "(212): Invalid account/password."

Source: NL/MyFile.fmp12

 

The workaround is to provide the username and password for the source-file (which in this case are identical to that of the clone):

MyMac:ClientFolder ThisUser$ FMDataMigration -src_path NL/MyFile.fmp12 -clone_path Clone/MyFile.fmp12 -src_account Developer -src_pwd MySecret -clone_account Developer -clone_pwd MySecret -ignore_fonts -ignore_valuelists -v

Then the result will be:

FMDataMigration 17.0.1.143 (04-12-2018)

Source file: "NL/MyFile.fmp12"

Source account: "Developer"

Clone file: "Clone/MyFile.fmp12"

Clone account: "Developer"

Target file: "NL/MyFile migrated.fmp12"

Force overwrite: Off

Ignore value lists: On

Ignore accounts: On

Ignore fonts: On

I have not tested this yet on Windows ... besides this not so important issue, this tool works very fast and will be a real timesaver!
