Vault conversion in 2005 from 5.4

Hi,
We started testing ST upgrade from 5.4 to 2005. We set up a test server and
used a recent backup. Everything is fine except the conversion that seems
not to end. We have a 60 GB vault and the conversion is runnig now for one
week. How should I know that the conversion succeeded and not stuck? Other
than that the server is working OK, new files I add I see them as Native-II
but old files are still Native-I.
I really don't know what to do know.... Please advice.
Thanks in advance,
NirS

NirS,
Look in your repository's root folder for a file called GoNativeII.en-US.Log
(it may have a slightly different name if you're running a non-English
locale).
When the conversion is done, you'll have something like this at the end of
the file:
"
...
100 00000001 2004-12-11 20:25:52 99% complete.
101 00000001 2004-12-11 20:27:28 100% complete.
102 00000001 2004-12-11 20:27:28 The conversion to Native-II vault
format has successfully completed.
103 00000001 2004-12-11 20:27:28 The number of duplicate file
content eliminated was 56422. The amount of space saved was 2461590.583984
KB.
104 00000001 2004-12-11 20:27:28 The number of text files which were
not compressed was 102567. The amount of space saved by compressing these
files was 2780065.801758 KB.

Re:Vault conversion in 2005 from 5.4

Take note - if it appears that the conversion is stalled at a certain
percentage, it may not actually be stalled.
I noticed that files with numerous revisions (like 500+ revisions) would
cause long periods of what looked like inactivity.
Our vault was only 7GB and took nearly 20 hours. 60GB is about 8.5xso I
might make a naive estimate that your conversion might take 170 hours or
more, and that's a little over a week.
I suppose this is why Borland included the option to convert archives while
the server is up and available.

Re:Vault conversion in 2005 from 5.4

Thanks for the replies....
I found the log, after two and a half days it's 30% so an estimation of
170-180 hours seems about right...
