The two IP servers can be on the same machine or geographically separate machines, and in the same broker or different brokers. There is a built-in launcher to invoke this tool with the mandatory arguments for the broker host, broker port, and the domain manager name of both IP servers.

Type the following command to run TCAT:

sm_tcat -b1 oldBrokerHost:oldBrokerPort -s1 oldIPServerName -b2 newBrokerHost:newBrokerPort -s2 newIPServerName [ -pw ]

The optional “-pw” argument is for interactively entering the non-default userid/password of brokers and domain managers.

Progress summary with relevant performance benchmarks are provided on the console.
