Enterprise Vault 7.5SP2 Centera to Centera Migration?

This issue has been solved. See solution.

We are using EV2007 SP2, with an EMC Centera backend, also using collections.  Due to an administrator mishap, several thousand ClipIDs were lost.  EMC has been working feverishly to get the IDs reassociated with the data on the Centera.  In the mean time, the Vault Stores have been moved to a second Centera and resumed. 

Mail archiving was unaffected, the only savesets effected were FSA objects.  The shortcuts still reside on the file servers. 

Question is - Once EMC is able to recover any IDs and savesets, what would be the best (and easiest) way to get that data over to the secondary Centera and put in the proper place for the shortcut to work for the user?

Currently, we believe this might be our best bet but I wanted to throw it out there and see if anyone had a better idea =

Step 1 - Recover the ClipID, and as many savesets as possible

Step 2 - Run EVCenteraChecker to unarchive that saveset into a new DVS file

Step 3 - Move DVS file to new location and re-associate within database

Step 4 - Verify file via EVCenteraChecker or with simple AntiVirus Scan to ensure shortcut pulls file requested.

Really for this i would suggest contacting symantec and discussing your options, i think the request is beyond the scope of the forum, as there is going to be a lot complexity and we don't want to make things worse or stall your recovery efforts

I don't think EVCenteraChecker will help to be honest, because its meant for integrity checks as opposed to mgiration to and from the centera, there are actual 3rd party products out there that will do Centera to NTFS migrations (such as Archive Shuttle by Glasshouse:

I figured, but I just wanted to double check.  Do you know anywhere I can find some actual documentation on EVCenteraChecker?
