Overview

Upgrading from LEM 5.5 to 5.6 performs a database migration of your data. Performing this upgrade converts your existing information, from newest to oldest, into the database format. In our latest release of LEM, we are migrating from a third party database software to an in-house database.

 

We have included a banner that displays the status of the migration and the estimated time until it is complete.

  • How long does it take?

Depending on the amount of data to be migrated and the system load, the migration could take from hours up to a few weeks. Data is migrated from newest to oldest.

  • Will I lose data?

No, the data is transferred over completely. New data continues to be migrated as it comes in and old data is moved over when new data is not being transferred.
