Quick Start Guide
To set up the conversion/sync follow the steps described below.
1. Add Connections
Firstly, let’s add database connections and configure them.
To add a new connection click on Connections ->Add connection, or click on
the Connection button on the top right corner of the Connections window.
In the New Connection window select the required
database type from the list of
supported databases. An IP address, Port, User Name and Password is usually required as obligatory

and MS SQL destination node as this example.
Click the Test connection button. The application attempts to
connect to your server with the specified parameters. A confirmation message
appears once the connection is established successfully:
Click Save button to make the connection available to be used as a source or
destination node. In the main window you can add as many connections as you wish. All of

Choose the appropriate migration model. Let’s pick Master to Slave

3. Migration Tuning.
In the next step you can adjust different settings
affecting the chosen source and
destination nodes in detail.
Click Commit button to begin running the
actual conversion/sync process.
4. Actual Process of data transfer.
Now you will see two progress-bars displaying the
whole conversion progress as well as
the progress of the current operation.
When migration is finished you can examine the operation log details and
any reported errors.
NOTE: When you press the Commit button, the application
automatically creates a job for the current process and saves all of your settings.
With this feature, you can arrange your conversion process to be run as a
scheduled task and run any time you need it to run.
