Okay, then I think the answer is yes, that would work as long as you. . . Let the nightly FULL backup of the [old] source DB copy over to the new SQL Server (see comment beneath #2 below as well on the FULL backup strategy to use here) Take the DIFF backup on your [old] source DB ( you may want to confirm the size of this during the same time frame of ...
Given that: There are some columns you don't want to pull through for each table Column names are different for each table You only have 40 tables This is a one-time migration (this is safe to assume, correct?) Then I would just copy and paste the core dataflow and make per-table changes as appropriate. For a non-repeating process that is a small amount ...

Reverse engineer your schema from INformix, then switch the schema to Mysql. You can then generate the script and apply it to Mysql. For data export, you'll need ...

Are you getting the error on the destination server? Is the path present on the destination server? You need to make sure that the paths defined in your CREATE DATABASE script exist on the destination server or you need to create them there.
Try this 1) Open the project 2) Remove the checkbox on the Schemas branch in the Oracle Metadata Explorer Right-click on the Schemas branch in the Oracle Metadata Explorer and select Refresh from Database. This will automatically put a checkbox on ALL schemas. Let the refresh run. This step can take a good amount of time. 3) Save the project
To ensure writes from the Master are complete, do the following on the Master: SET GLOBAL read_only = 1; FLUSH TABLES; FLUSH LOGS; Go to the Slave and run the following: STOP SLAVE; RESET SLAVE ALL; Then, make sure there is no Slave setup SHOW SLAVE STATUS\G If it comes back with nothing, setup the new connect string and you're done !!!
