    PIAF template change


      Hey guys,


      I have a situation that I am not sure hoe to fix it.


      I have a defined templates in PI AF. I need to change this hierarchy structure by adding a new parent template. Lets say I have Template_A and I want to add a new Template, Templae_Base.

      I need to make Template_Base as parent of Template_A and move some of the attributes from Template_A to Template_Base. Then I export my new Element Template to an XML file and then use to to export to production AF database.(using PI System Explorer).

      problem is after exporting now I have duplicate attributes in both template. How can i prevent this? I tried to manually remove duplicate tributes from Template_A but by this actual values on child elements are getting wiped out.


      Any suggestion?
