Moving Administration Server to another device

To move Administration Server to another device without shifting the Administration Server database:

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

    To simplify the process of moving administration groups, we recommend that you make sure that the address of the new Administration Server matches the address of the previous Administration Server. The address (the device name in the Windows network or an IP address) is specified in the settings for Network Agent connection to Administration Server.

  3. On the new Administration Server recover Administration Server data from the backup copy.
  4. If the address (the device name in the Windows network or the IP address) of the new Administration Server does not match the address of the previous Administration Server, connect client devices to the new Administration Server, by creating an Administration Server shift task for the Managed devices group on the previous Administration Server.

    If the addresses match, you do not have to create an Administration Server shift task, and the connection will be made to the address specified in the settings.

  5. Delete the previous Administration Server.

To move Administration Server to another device and change the Administration Server database:

  1. Create a backup copy of Administration Server data.
  2. Set a new SQL Server host.

    To transfer information correctly, the database on the new SQL Server host must have the same collation schemes as the previous SQL Server host.

  3. Install a new Administration Server. The name of the previous SQL Server database and that of the new one must match.

    To simplify the process of moving administration groups, we recommend that you make sure that the address of the new Administration Server matches the address of the previous Administration Server. The address (the device name in the Windows network or an IP address) is specified in the settings for connecting Network Agent to Administration Server.

  4. On the new Administration Server, recover the data from the previous Administration Server from the backup copy.
  5. If the address (the device name in the Windows network or the IP address) of the new Administration Server does not match the address of the previous Administration Server, connect client devices to the new Administration Server, by creating an Administration Server shift task for the Managed devices group on the previous Administration Server.

    If the addresses match, you do not have to create an Administration Server shift task, and the connection will be made to the address specified in the settings.

  6. Delete the previous Administration Server.
