How do you migrate from a Central Archive Server to Process Historian 2014?
Process Historian 2014 features a CAS migration tool to enable Central Archive Server (CAS) users to migrate to Process Historian 2014.
Following migration, the CAS data is available in the same way in the Process Historian as the OS data which had been saved originally.
That means that the CAS data is located in database tables which are accessed with the aid of the information server.
All the migratable CAS versions and the associated versions of PCS 7 and WinCC are listed in the table below:
|PCS 7 version||WinCC version||StoragePlus /|
|V7.0 SP1||V6.2 SP2||V1.2 SP2||X|
|V7.0 SP2||V6.2 SP2 HF7||V1.2 SP2 HF7||X|
|V7.0 SP3||V6.2 SP3 HF1||V1.2 SP3||X|
|V7.1||V7.0 SP1||V1.3 SP1||X|
|V7.1 SP1||V7.0 SP1 HF4||V1.3 SP1 HF4||X|
|V7.1 SP2||V7.0 SP2||V7.0 SP2||X||X|
|V7.1 SP3||V7.0 SP2 Upd4||V7.0 SP2 Upd4||X||X|
|V7.1 SP4||V7.0 SP2 Upd8||V7.0 SP2 Upd8||X||X|
|V8.0||V7.0 SP3||V7.0 SP3||X||X|
|V8.0 Upd1||V7.0 SP3 Upd1||V7.0 SP3 Upd1||X||X|
|V8.0 SP1 Upd1||V7.2 Upd5||V7.2 Upd5||X|
|V8.0 SP2||V7.2 Upd7||V7.2 Upd7||X|
Table 01: Migratable CAS versions
By updating a CAS of PCS 7 version 6.1 past version 7.0 to version V7.1 SP2, the CAS database structure is not changed in such a way that the CAS data can be migrated. This would cause the data and structures created in PCS 7 V6.1 to be lost!
