    Hi jasonjo,

    Not sure if you are using a database or file repository?

    I use a database (mySql).

    You really need an upgrade path through major versions - 4.2 -> 5 ->6 -> 7. Export the repo from each and import into the next. I have used this method and have not found any issues.

    Of course, once you have upgraded to 7 you will need to test your jobs/transformations - i am sure you will find some changes that need to be made. I have found it has been minimal for me, but it depends on how complicated your transformations are.

    HTH

    Redshift - 1.0.1485
