Depending on the size of your storage, and the migration parameters you have configured, the migration process may take a long time. To enable easy monitoring of the process, status and error messages are printed into a dedicated log file,
_HOME/artifactory/var/log/artifactory-sha256-migration.log. In addition, some messages (process initiation, startup errors) are also logged in the
Post SHA-256 Migration
While it's not mandatory, it is recommended to remove all SHA-256-related system properties after the migration has completed and perform a restart.
