I want to convet MS SQL databasse to MySQL. I am using MySQL Workbench. The only problem i am facing is MS SQL Server Uniqueidentifier datatype. Error i receive when migrating is "Default value newid() is not supported.".
In many table Uniqueidentifier is a Primary and Foreign key. Is this possible the primary and foreign keys remain relational during migration.
What are best ways to do above migration.

Hi Rana Anees,
You can use function UUID() in My SQL instead of NEWID() function, please see: http://forums.sugarcrm.com/f6/developed-auto-generate-ids-guids-within-mysql-2895/
You can use SSIS to move data to MySQL database: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/mattm/archive/2009/01/07/writing-to-a-mysql-database-from-ssis.aspx
And you can also use MySQL Migration Toolkit: http://www.convert-in.com/sqlkit.htm
Since the issue is most related to MySQL, you can post you question to MySQL forum: http://forums.mysql.com/
