Noah System DB Maintenance

HIMSA released Noah System 4.15.0 on June 5th, 2023. Note, that if you have upgraded your database from 4.14 to 4.15, you do NOT need to run the The DB Maintenance tool. Do run the tool when using Noah 4.14.2 or if you have imported data directly into 4.15.

The Noah System Database Maintenance tool has been designed to rectify any issues in the Noah System database before migrating the database to Noah ES. Since Noah’s release many years ago there have been many updates and improvements to the database. The Noah System DB Maintenance tool will get all databases up to date and in line with stricter Noah ES database requirements.

It is highly recommended to run the Noah System DB Maintenance tool before migration to prepare for an efficient, error free move to Noah ES.

The Noah System DB Maintenance tool is supported for use with the default CE database and with a Microsoft SQL Server database.
