Database Transfer

This task allows you to convert the database format. The tool can convert between the following databases:

MS Access

MS SQL Server



The first step is to check the database connection. This step is common for all tasks, except when uploading a new license key and modifying server configuration.

If the database is an MS Access database, specify the path to the .mdb file. The path specified during ERA Server installation is used by default.

All other database formats require additional parameters to be set:

Connection string: Special string used to identify the source database

Username: Username for accessing the database

Password: Password for accessing the database

Schema name: Name of a schema (available for Oracle and MS SQL only)

Click Load current server configuration to use the current ERA Server settings. Click Test Connection to test the database connection. If the connection cannot be established, check the parameters for errors. After the database test is successful, continue by clicking Next.

Then, select the target database. Select Replace server connection settings to connect the server and use the new database after successful conversion. Not selecting this option will cause the new database to be created without the server updating to the new database version.

For all database types besides MS Access database, select whether to create the database tables automatically (Create tables in the database automatically) or insert the tables into the database later (View Script > Save to File) in the next step. For an MySQL database, the Create a new database ESETRADB automatically option automatically creates a new MS SQL database named ESETRADB. The final step is to confirm the database conversion.
