QADirector Migrating to SQL Svr 2008
      #659649 - 02/08/11 09:11 AM

Has anyone migrated a QAD database from one version of SQL Svr to another? Our current SQL Svr 2000 database is about 30 GBs, so I really don't want to just convert it to Svr 2008. I was planning on just exporting only the projects we are actively working on. Any comments on the above or other ideas? thanks don

I did last year, upgrading from SQL Server 2000 to SQL Server 2008. We took a db backup one night in 2000, made a brand new db in 2008, and then restored the backup. The difference was that our db was only about 2GB, not 30. The problem that we ran into was that our db team decided to rebuild all the indexes once we got to 2008, and our searches went to hell. We had to send our db back to MicroFocus to have them fix the indexes, and they told us that reindexing had violated the terms of our maintenance agreement.

Did Micro Focus try to get you to move to SilkCentral?

We had two MF folks out and they gave us a presentation on Silk Central, but we decided that it would not give us enought 'extra stuff' to justify the additional work to set it up and then having to training everyone on a new tool to use. Although, I have noticed that support for QAD has gotten worse. I have an issue that is preventing me from completing our migration to our new database and can't seem to get any assistance from MF. don
