Subject Migrating from 1.56 to FB 3 - making good progress
Author Kevin Stanton

I have been successfully created a script of the metadata in the 1.56 database, ran the script against FB 3 (all using IB Expert).

Initial attempt only revealed about 20 or so errors. Not too bad for a fairly complex 20-year old database.

I have fixed all the errors and can now run the script with no warnings or errors.

The trick is populating the 3.0 database. I know there are data pump tools out there but they seem to be old?

My question:
Now that my 1.56 metadata script works w/out error with the 3.0 database, can I simply backup the 1.56 database and restore under FB 3?

Thanks in advance!
