I am trying to migrate my data from one Mac to another. The transfer is from my MacBook Pro running OS X 10.9.5, to my MacBook Pro (Retina) running OS X 10.10 Yosemite.
I followed the suggestions in this forum for the config/settings:
- Turn off the firewall on both the machines
- Turn off WiFi on both the machines
- IP Address of the Ethernet is reachable from both ends
Then started Migration Assistant on the source first. Selected "To another Mac" option and it begins waiting for the other computer.
Then I started Migration Assistant on the receiver. Selected "From another Mac…" option and its able to see the source. I selected the source and clicked next. It then showed the code.
However, the source is still stuck in the "Looking for other computers" state and does not progress.
