Upgrading a version 10 or later database (Sybase Central)

You can use the Upgrade Database Wizard to upgrade a version 10 or later database by adding and modifying system tables, system procedures, and database options to enable version 16 features.

Prérequis

You must have the following system privileges:

  • ALTER DATABASE

  • BACKUP DATABASE

  • SERVER OPERATOR

Follow the standard precautions for upgrading software. See Upgrade and rebuild precautions.

Caution

Back up your database files before upgrading. If you apply the upgrade to the existing files, then these files become unusable if the upgrade fails. To back up your database, you must have the BACKUP DATABASE system privilege. For information about backing up your database, see Backup and data recovery.

Contexte et remarques

The Upgrade Database Wizard does not upgrade a version 9.0.2 or earlier database to version 16. To upgrade an existing version 9.0.2 or earlier database to version 16, you must unload and reload the database using dbunload or the Unload Database Wizard. See Upgrading version 9 and earlier databases.
