About Migrating iFix to Historian

The iFIX migration tools are intended for users who are responsible for migrating their Classic or Advanced Historian systems and iFIX alarm and event data to Historian. This manual assumes that you are familiar with the iFIX and the Advanced Historian or Classic Historian environments.

This manual describes the steps for planning your Historian migration and performing the migration of your data from both the Advanced Historian and Classic Historian environments.

For more information on running iFIX, refer to the iFIX Help. If you are planning to implement Electronic Signatures and Electronic Records or Historian Security, it is recommended that you perform migration prior to setting up or initializing these features. If the migration will be a gradual process over time, please refer to Using Historian in a Regulated Environment, Using Historian and Implementing Security During Migration.
