 Restoring IDS 7.31 on IDS 2000
Is there a way you can restore data from IDS 7.31 on IDS 2000?
I tried it using ontape command but i get an error:Backup data
incompatible with Online version.

Thanks in advance.

You have to restore the data with exactly the same informix version as
the backup taken.

So I would suggest that you install your IDS 7.31 server, restore the
data and then migrate to IDS.2000.

Best regards

I read "Eric Herber's" reply and that the way to go.

However, you may suffer a constraint whereby your 2k Server is been up for a
while and you have new data records on the new system. In this case, to
preserve the new data:

1. Unload all applicable tables (on new system)to text files and back them
up

2. Rebuild the server using 7.x and restore you old data

3. Upgrade/migrate to IDS 2k

4. Use DBLOAD utility to restore the text files (you may use the LOAD
utility if the files are small)

Good luck.
