Context: We are currently on HP ALM 11.53 and have recently stood up a new environment for HP ALM 12.50 with the plan of migrating projects from one environment to the other over time, then sunsetting the old environment. The migration approach that we've used in the past and plan to use this time around is to create an additional database reference in the old environment (e.g. 11.53) that points to the new environment (e.g. 12.50). For each project migration, in the old environment we create a new project from an existing project and point it to the new environment db server. Then we go on to edit the dbid.xml file and change the physical directory to refer to the new path that was established on the new app server, then do restore project, verify project, repair project, and upgrade project operations and wait for the migration process to do its thing.
Issue: When trying this for the first time between our 11.53 and 12.50 environments, we experienced a "Failed to Create Project" error. The details in the SaServerLog indicated "Login failed for user 'td'". I read somewhere that the td password for both databases needs to be the same. I've confirmed that they are not the same in our case. In the old environment, the password is the standard "tdtdtd" whereas in the new environment it is something else that we apparently specified out of ignorance during the 12.50 install. (fyi… we know what this password is as we used the same password for every 12.50 install step that required one)
