Upgrading the Database

The CIMPager Server comes equipped with a database converter that allows the administrator to upgrade a database if they are running an older version of CIMPager Server.

If upgrading from a previous version of CIMPager Server, the administrator and server databases must both be converted to run with the new version.

  1. Run the Convert option:

  2. From the Start menu, select ProgramsFirstPAGEServerDatabase Conversion. This will launch the Conversion Wizard.

  1. For users who are running versions prior to Version 8, the Converter Wizard will run this upgrade first, converting .DAT files to .MDB (Access Database). For Version 8 users, the Wizard will indicate source data path is invalid, as Version 8 does not utilize .DAT files. Selecting Close on this screen will launch the conversion for Access Database upgrade.
