    Migration fails with non-informative error message

    Apfelkraut.org

      I am trying to migrate my catalog from Lightroom Classic CC to the new Lightroom CC and getting a non-helpful error message directly after checking file paths.

       

      SIMILAR REPORTS (but still not the same)

      - Migration failed with uninformative error

      - Migration error

       

      MY ENVIRONMENT

      - MacBookPro11,3 with MacOS 10.13 with a SSD formatted with encrypted APFS

      - Lightroom Classic CC 7.0 [ 1140024 ]

      - Lightroom CC 1.0 [ 20170919-1412-ccb76bd ] (Sep 19 2017)

      - "Classic"-Catalog at default place /Users/<user>/Pictures/Lightroom/Lightroom Catalog.lrcat

      - about 30.000 image files (mostly NEF raws and JPEGs) of total size 500 GB

      - Image files stored on connected samba share smb://<servername>._smb._tcp.local/<share name>/<folder name> (running on a Synology NAS with latest firmware).

      - CC originals folder location changed to an external spinning disk hard drive (size: 1 TB). Connected via USB. Formatted as MacOS Extended (Journaled, Encrypted).

      - free space of main harddrive close to 150 GB

       

      PREPARATIONS

      - strictly followed  https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom-cc/using/migrate-to-lightroom-cc.html

      - double checked if samba share and USB disk are connected and accessible/writable

       

      STEPS

      1.) start Lightroom CC via Terminal using option "-tracebacks"

      2.) start migrating catalog via UI of Lightroom CC. (File -> Import -> Migrate LR catalog)

      3.) migration wizard starts up and checks all file paths. At least the maximum count of my images is reached before the message appears.

       

      OBSERVED BEHAVIOR

      - Error message: "Migration was not successful. No one is more unhappy about this than us. Except you probably. Please contact our support team."

      - For Terminal output see end of this post

      - Migration is terminated

       

      EXPECTED BEHAVIOR

      - Successful migration ;-) or at least some useful information that could help me (or support) to resolve the issue.

      - Some log file that could provide more information. Where could I look on what actually went wrong?
