Move devices from one database to another

0

I have devices in several databases that I want to consolidate into one.  What is the best way of doing this and are there certain steps I need to perform in a specific order?

For instance can I just start adding devices into the primary database and then archive the data in the old database.

Elliot,

Best practice is to first make them historic in the original database (don't forget to keep record of the Serial Numbers as they will be erased) and then add them to the new database.

I would suggest doing this in the evening as it may take up to 8 hours for the device to be released by the previous database and allow it to communicate to the new one.

Will the historic data be left in the old database, or follow into the new one?
