How do I combine two Carousels into one?

Applies to

  • Carousel 5.2.0+

Process

If you are looking to simply migrate your media and data from an existing Carousel system to another please see How do I migrate my database and content to another server?

To start, you must know the limitations of this process: we cannot fully merge 2 Carousel systems together. What we will do is manually recreate the user accounts from the original system on the new central system and then export the Channels from the original system to the new central system.

  1. Login to your original system and find the list of user accounts.
  2. Login to your new central system and create new matching accounts for the users you wish to move.
  3. On the original system, login to Windows and open the Clone Tool (details in the Carousel Manual).
  4. Export each channel with a unique name.
  5. Transfer the newly created .CSL files from your original system to your new central system.
  6. On the new central system, login to Windows and open the Clone Tool.
  7. Import each channel using the transfered .CSL files.
