How to do Delta Migration Properly

Hi Ubertheme,
How can I do delta migration properly?
ie: I dump the M1 production database to a new server
Then I migrate the M1 into M2 on the new server (with localhost connection to a second database)
Then what is the process of the final delta migration with the new dump from M1?
How does that work? Do I just overwrite the database with the newer version and run the delta?
or Do I have to reset? or what is the proper steps?

Hi there,

or Do I have to reset? or what is the proper steps?

You don’t need to reset. You simply import the new dump of your M1 database in order to replace the old M1 database. And then, you can run delta migration.
 
You should learn more about the delta migration in the Readme manual that comes packed with your download package.

Hello,
Sorry to bump an old thread. To confirm, the delta migration can be run on new database dumps, and does not need access to the live production DB?
I struggled with the official data migration tool because it made updates to the database which would not be present in newer versions of the DB dump. Plus, with trying to maintain best security practices, it isn’t ideal to connect directly to the production DB.
Thanks!
