Aveva. Admin. Reconfig DB with cross-references

Sometimes happens that we need to change DB number to other dbnumber.But what shoud we do with cross-references? Use the method that is described below and there will be no problems.

This is for experienced PDMS admins, anyway make backup before this steps!!!

If the contents of more than one DB are to be transferred, provided no reference attributes point outside the set of DBs being transferred, an extension of the same procedure could be used. Consider the transfer of the whole of one Design DB, the whole of a Catalogue DB and one item of equipment from a second Design DB, thus:

Source DB
Elements Transferred
Destination DB
CIVIL/STRUC4
Whole Design DB
STEEL/MAIN
ANSI/MASCAT
Whole Catalogue DB
CATAL/MAIN
SITE-A
One Site
EQUIP/MAIN
The reconfiguration commands should be given in the following order:
In the source project:
FROM DB ANSI/MASCAT
TO FILES /REC1A /REC1B
RCFCOPY ALL
RECONFIGURE
Copies the Catalogue DB first
FROM DB CIVIL/STRUC4
TO FILES /REC2A /REC2B
RCFCOPY ALL
RECONFIGURE
Copies the Design DB
FROM DB VESSEL/V25CT
TO FILES /REC3A /REC3B
RCFCOPY /SITE-A
RECONFIGURE
Copies the Site
and in the destination project:
FROM FILES /REC1A /REC1B
TO DB CATAL/MAIN
RECONFIGURE
Creates Catalogue DB
FROM FILES /REC2A /REC2B
TO DB STEEL/MAIN
RECONFIGURE
Creates Design DB
FROM FILES /REC3A /REC3B
TO DB EQUIP/MAIN
RECONFIGURE
Creates equipment item
RCFUPDATE DB STEEL/MAIN
RCFUPDATE DB EQUIP/MAIN
Gives correct cross-references
