    50     optionally followed by a migration. The migration can only be
    51     done to a pristine (empty) BASE 2 server, and migration from
    52     several BASE 1 installations to one BASE 2 server is not

     50    optionally followed by a migration. The migration can only be done
     51    to a pristine (empty) BASE 2 server with one exception; The
     52    migration can be restarted if it fails during the RawBioAssaysData
     53    transfer, for all other failure points the migration has to be
     54    restarted with an empty database. Migration from several BASE 1

     1013            If you are planning to perform a migration of data from
     1014            BASE 1.2.x please perform the steps in

     1016            doing anything else with your new BASE installation.

    1061       There is currently no way to restart a migration. The behaviour
    1062       of migration is controlled
    1063       through <filename>migration.properties</filename> file (see <xref linkend="appendix.migrate.properties"/>), but you
    1064       should know what you do when you change parameters in this file.
     1069      The behaviour of migration is controlled
     1070      through <filename>migration.properties</filename> file (see
     1071      <xref linkend="appendix.migrate.properties"/>), but you should
     1072      know what you do when you change parameters in this file.

     1076      Migration can be restarted in one specific case only; If the
     1077      migration fails during the RawBioAssaysData transfer simply
     1078      restart the migration and the script will ask you to verify that
     1079      a restart should be attempted. For all other failure points the
     1080      migration has to be restarted with an empty database.
