Interbase 2007 ->2020

Recommended Posts

I wish everyone a healthy day.
 

I upgraded my IB2007 to IB2020

After Install IB2020 i opened IBConsole and tried to connect my

old database(IB2007) for BackUp & Restore but i got

Unsupported on-disk structure for file ...... found 12, support 18
What is wrong ?

Thank You

The legacy way of upgrading ODS is:

 

Make a *backup* of the DB file with the older ODS (On Disk Structure).

Then *restore* the database using the new version, the ODS will upgrade.

 

BUT: Regarding IB i do not know whether you can make the backup using the new server or if you must use the old server version.

IB may even have command line tools to upgrade, i do not know.

Log in to the server node itself, then on the backups node right-click it and select restore.  From there should be rather self explanatory.  It is hidden and only available with the server node logged in even though that isn't necessary to do the restore itself.
