Using data-migration-tool i managed to migrate my m1 data into m2. I referred below link. https://www.cloudways.com/blog/migrate-from-magento-1-to-magento-2/
I downloaded the migration tool inside the m2 directory and it worked well. Where my M1 files also on same server. Both DB also in same server.
My Questions are Does it work if :
I download migration-tool-kit to some new directory instead of downloading it into M2 directory?
Are both M1 and M2 files should be in same server? Does it work if both files are in different servers?
Both M1 and M2 Database should be in same server? Does it work if connection string of M1 and M2 are different?
