So I have landed on my feet as a contractor and where I am currently working they are migrating to 6.1.4 TSM from 5.x versions. In their testing they found a 36GB DB took 14 hours for the complete migration of the DB. This time includes completing storage pool migration, stopping all processes, and bringing down the original TSM server clean. So I am not looking forward to the large 100+GB DB's. I also find it interesting how many companies have not migrated to version 6. The only reason they are going to 6.1.x is that it has been tested and 6.2 has not (their testing process is long and tedious). So what has everyone else seen as their average migration time from 5.x to 6.x?
