  3. Run this command to change the extracted directory:

    cd migrate_config/
  4. Run this command to change the permission of the script and let it run:

    sudo chmod +x
  5. Run this command to run the migration script:

  6. When prompted, enter the old scanner UUID as the source scanner UUID.

  7. When prompted, enter the new scanner UUID as the destination scanner UUID.

    If the script succeeds, you are prompted by a messaged similar to Configuration, preferences and schedules have been successfully migrated. If there is an error or issue, contact your CST and include the red status messages that explains the failure. Do not proceed with the migration.
