The Database Maintenance utility can make a duplicate copy of a database by copying records from one database to another database. For example, if a site uses Microsoft Access as the Silk Test Workbench asset repository, and the desire is to store Silk Test Workbench data in an Oracle database, use the Database Maintenance utility to copy the data stored in the Access database to the Oracle database. When the copy utility is used, all Silk Test Workbench data is automatically copied to a format that is readable by the target database.
Copy operations not should be performed on network databases. Instead, copy the database to a local workstation, perform the copy function, then copy the database back to the network location. This ensures that network disruptions and interruptions do not interfere with the copy task.
