I am updating the schema of an enterprise geodatabase. My plan is to create an xml document of the database schema, make my changes within the xml editor, and then create a new GDB with the new schema imported. After this I will import the new data by using append.
I know that I can preserve the GlobalID value by ensuring the environmental settings are as I wish. But, I am wondering if there is a way to preserve the original automated 'Created By' and 'Created Date' fields with the user that actually created the record and date that it was actually created. In the past, all of the records were updated with 'Administrator' and the date that the records were imported.
