This document describes how to execute the Metasys Post Installation (MPI) Database tool after installing the Metasys Application Data Server (ADS) or Extended Application Data Server (ADX) software if the installation notifies you that the database conversion failed.

The MPI Database tool is a Microsoft® Windows® application that is used to launch two plug-ins for resolving database problems that require user input:
  • Attribute Name to ID Conversion tool: converts the attribute name to the attribute ID in the existing JCIHistorian database to match the new language independent data storage method at Metasys Server Release 11.0 and later.
  • The Data Precision Enhancement tool: converts the data type in the ADS and ADX JCIHistorian database from real to float.

This document does not describe how to prepare, install, or upgrade your computer with the Metasys Server software. Also, this document does not describe how to build, download, or manage a database.

If you are converting point names in the existing JCIHistorian database, see Attribute Name to ID Conversion Tool Overview and Detailed Procedures: Attribute Name to ID Conversion Tool. If you are converting a data type in the JCIHistorian database from real to float, see Data Precision Enhancement Tool Overview and Detailed Procedures: Data Precision Enhancement Tool.
