Migrating Triumph-LS to Linux OS

It reports this message because yout T1 firmware doesn't support new features used by Triumph-LS. I think "Moving Base" is the one. You better upgrade T1M with the latest firmware. The Message doesn't disturb normal activity, but just alert the user about potential issues. Tell me firmware version at T1M, please.
I admit I hadn't remembered to check for updates to the T1M. So I just connected to it and updated to version 3.7.3 p1 Jun, 21, 2018. Sorry I should have thought of that the other day. I did not have any problems that I know of so I hope I'm OK now.

I migrated another one of our systems today. Everything seemed to go fine but I noticed during the migration that it was taking much longer than the other two I’d done.
There were only 8 jobs in the LS when I began the migration but when everything was finished restoring it gave me a message that “58 projects successfully unpacked” and sure enough, there were 6 pages of jobs now in the LS.
Any idea how/why this happened? It pulled the jobs, I’m sure, from the archived jobs I had on the attached SD card, but the question is, why?

I updated to the newest stable Linux and J-Field today. I clicked "Yes" to the "Create restore point?" prompt, but was informed that there's not enough room on the SD card. Is there anything on the internal SD card that shouldn't be removed?

Did you mitigation files on your USB drive from another unit?
I did use the same usb drive I’d used on the other units. I was leading one of our guys through the process and had him delete everything on that usb before we started. The jobs that are now populated in the “open existing job” list are ones from the machine we were updating that had previously been archived to that particular SD card.

I’m thinking they may not keep all the individual base files cleaned out and erased separately after archiving each job. Maybe those somehow caused it to “pull” those jobs back into the current list of open jobs?

I migrated over to Linux yesterday and updated my 1M. Everything works great. I'm very impressed with the speed and how easy it was to switch operating systems. Thanks JAVAD team for doing a great job and all the great tech support.

ok....an oops by me...."apparently", the user I was helping through the migration process archived the jobs, but in fact, did NOT delete them, therefore there were 58 jobs loaded on the LS when we began the migration.
It did go through fine - just took forever.....

I have tried unsuccessfully 3 times to migrate to Linux.

On the first attempt after about 3 hours LS got to the black screen and hung up, I reset with the on button. The new thumb drive was FAT32 and the had the copied restore files copied to it.

After the first attempt I took the time to clean out the old files and left 5 or 6 projects and once again started the migration process, which only took about 45 minutes to an hour before once again the black screen hang up at which time I reset it with the on button. This time there was a crash dump file on the thumb drive and when LS booted back up the was a SOAP ERROR and an error code MD5(I think, failed to write down).

On the third attempt I reformatted the thumb drive and got the same issue.

What is the source of your internet connection? Do you have a slow connection? The SOAP error is caused by a problem with your internet connection.

Thanks for your reply. It is a wireless connection, speed test was download 44 mbps, upload 8 mbps. We use it daily with dpos and transfer all files with mounted drive. I have attached the picture of the error message from my 4th attempt at migration. The archiving took about 15 minutes and about the same for the downloading of software and install and it hung up at the 95% of install and went to black screen at which point I reset.

The wireless ISP is probably the problem. I’m not sure why it causes problems when trying to download the Linux installation but you should try using your home or office internet.

I helped a gentleman a few days ago who had trouble migrating. He was using a verizon jetpack. He went to a public library and used their wifi to download with success.
