There are two main ways to run a data flow from the DMC: Run and Submit.
Run will run the data flow immediately. When you run a flow, processing information is displayed in the Console Log.
Submit will submit the data flow to the scheduler to run. When you submit a flow, the processing information is recorded in the DataMigrator Log and Statistics tables. Email messages are also sent if the flow properties are set to send email messages at the start or end of the job.
On the Flow tab, in the Run group, click Run, and select one of the run options available.
Right-click a data flow in the navigation pane and select one of the Run options available.
Note: When you submit the flow, processing information is recorded in the DM log and, if specified, email messages are sent. When you run the flow, the processing information is only displayed in the Console Log. It is not written to the DM log.
For more information on the Run options, see Navigation Pane: Procedures.
