Exception while migrating from Alfresco 2.0 to Alfresco 2.1

Question asked by amarendrakt on Jul 9, 2007
Hello Every body,

   First of all great cheers :D  for coming out with Alfresco 2.1.0 community version.i was eagerly waiting for this release.

   i migrated from Alfresco2.0 to Alfresco2.1.0 with mysql as the database.
   and then i imported the all the data from Alfresco 2.0 mysql database to   Alfresco 2.1.0 mysql database to recreate the same space structure, users  and groups(basically i excuted the scrpit file(xyz.sql) which i took as backup for Alfresco2.0 database).

There are certain issues(as i noticed) i observed.

First of all when i start the tomcat server i can see that it is again running the database script(*.sql) files provided with Alfresco 2.1.0.

can someone tell me how i can use the previous database with latest Alfresco version.

Second i am getting the exception org.alfresco.error.AlfrescoRuntimeException: Ensure that the 'dir.root' property is pointing to the correct data location.

Altough my dir.root dorectory is

dir.root=C:/Alfresco2.1/alf_data which i have specified in custom-repository.properties file.

The stack trace for the exception is as follows

org.alfresco.error.AlfrescoRuntimeException: Ensure that the 'dir.root' property is pointing to the correct data location.

One more point

i can not find repository.jar file in the /web-inf/lib dir.what about that??

i basically upgraded the Alfresco2.1 war file through amp to put my customized classes and changes in JSP pages and xml files into Alfresco 2.1 which i was earlier doing for Alfresco2.0.

i got the class not found exception
unfortunatly i do not have the stack trace for the same.

but it seems that the class is present in repository.jar file.

Can any body give me the answer

Thanks & Regards

Amarendra
