[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Quick Question about Migrating from Archon 3.21

Hi Rob,

It looks like the manual is out of date.  The latest version of the ArchonMigrator tool https://github.com/archivesspace/ArchonMigrator supports 1.4.2 (the last release before the container management features were added).  Other than that, I would say you have the right approach.  Archon -> ASpace 1.4.2 -> the current version of ASpace.  I do this semi-regularly, and it works well.

Now for the geeky questions. :-)

I'm thinking the most prudent approach will be to install ASpace 1.0.4 on our servers, do the migration, and then update to ASpace 2.0.x.
