[rt-users] Difficulties converting mySQL to Oracle

Thanks. We discovered the sequence problems but I will pass that to our DBAs.

We will have to repeat this process for our prod environment, so any suggestions or pointers to documentation  for supported/better migration techniques would be welcomed. This document was the most detailed I found:

I have to start by saying this is not something we'd considered a 'supported migration technique'.  Especially given your errors.

Your DBAs should compare
to what you have, you're missing or have incorrect sequences.
