Moving Administration Server to another device

To move Administration Server to another device:

  1. Create a backup copy of Administration Server data.
  2. Install Administration Server on the selected device.

    To simplify the process of maintaining the structure of the administration groups, we recommend that you make sure that the address of the new Administration Server is the same as the address of the old Administration Server. The address (that is, the device name in the Windows network or an IP address) is specified in Network Agent settings, in the Connection to Administration Server settings group.

  3. On the new Administration Server, recover Administration Server data from the backup copy.
  4. If the address (that is, the device name in the Windows network or the IP address) of the new Administration Server is not the same as the address of the old Administration Server, connect client devices to the new Administration Server by creating the Change Administration Server task for the Managed devices group on the old Administration Server.

    If the address is the same, you do not have to create this task. The connection will be made to the address specified in the settings.

  5. Delete the old Administration Server.

If you want, you can also use a new device for the DBMS. To transfer information correctly, make sure that the new DBMS has the same collation schemes as the old one.
