The Document Type Definition (DTD) file that defines the structure of the XML file used
for migration is available on your Address Manager
appliance or VM. Launch a web
browser and navigate to the protocol://addressmanager-host/dtd/migration.dtd
file, where protocol
is http or https, and addressmanager-host
is the IP
address or host name for your Address Manager
appliance or VM. Use this address
to view and download the DTD file. You can also add this address to the header of your
migration XML file to validate the file before you perform the migration.
Note: Most browsers can display
the DTD file. Microsoft Internet Explorer can't display the DTD

- If no parent block exists, Address Manager won't create the network
and will instead log an error and skip the element.
