Walk-through to Commissioning a System:
Repeating the Upsizing of Data
If your system is being used by other people, then there will be a time lag between when you first
take a copy of the system to upsize and when you want to commission the system.
In most cases you want to repopulate your database with the latest live data.
The commissioning module supports this.
After you have migrated your database, ensure that you keep a copy of the MUST system
otherwise you will not be able to repeat the migration during the commissioning steps.
||This step has three buttons, to allow you to re-link to the databases allowing for the files to
have moved, then to update the record counts which are used to check that the upsize has worked
and finally to check for illegal data values (this can then be automatically fixed).
||There are six buttons on this form which are followed in a sequence. Firstly relationships
and validation are removed from the SQL Server, then indexes are removed, and then the tables
emptied of data. The second set of buttons repeat the process in reverse, migrating the data
then adding the indexing and finally adding back the relationships and validation code.
||If you updated the row counts in the first step above, then you can use this form to
display any tables which have not correctly upsized, if all is well nothing should be shown
in this form.
||The Access application can finally be re-linked to the SQL Server, if not already linked.
