LMS Migration Information

Table of contents
No headers

Turnitin data will become unusable when migrating to a new LMS server, upgrading an LMS server, or making any changes to the system, which results in deleting or changing existing LMS IDs (also referred to as database primary keys or PKIDs). This occurs if the system was copied using the archive / restore method when moving to managed hosted.


It is recommended that you back up your existing database by making a request to Blackboard to clone the existing system. By cloning this data, the PKIDs will remain unchanged and Turnitin data will remain uncorrupted in the new instance.


Blackboard will also need to ensure the sequences tables on the server are updated.
