CDT - A Barry-Wehmiller Company offers a valuable tip on PTC Windchill PLM around data migration. If you are involved in migrating data from Pro/Intralink 3.4 to Windchill PDMLink 9.1/10.0, the below tip & trick should be useful and relevant to you.
Scenario:
Have you faced a situation where, UnHide fails to execute after FileTransfer was unable to transfer the exact amount of files (as identified in the Migration Status report)?
Recommended Tip:

Unhide is not executing because FileTransfer was not successful in transferring all the desired files.

Since the user is aware and has acknowledged the missing files, please use the keyword “ignore” and technique shown below to skip this check and re-run UnHide:

In <mig_home>\loadXMLFiles\ilwcmigration\ClassMapping.xml:

<loader>
<associatedclasses>
<class>com.ptc.migration.util.UnHide</class>
</associatedclasses>
<dependents>
<loaderid>8</loaderid>
<loaderid>7</loaderid>
<loaderid>9</loaderid>
<loaderid>10</loaderid>
<loaderid>11</loaderid>
</dependents>
</loader>

Here is a trick we want to also share:

Run UnHide command with “-override” parameter i.e. ildataloader UnHide –override
