<(CM) Support tip> Migrate or duplicate Web Client

Description                     :  

This poste gives steps to follow for migrating Web Client to a different server  or Duplicate Web Client on the same machine.

Steps to follow               :

1,   Make a copy of the current Web Client setup folder

Copy the entire folder to the destination location (where  the new Web Client setup folder is put ) :

For example,  the new Web Client setup directory will be under E drive , then  the Web Client setup directory can be copied and pated  to E drive  :  E:\Web Client.

2,  A work path for the new Web Client is required as well (it can be the same as the default Web Client workpath that the current Web Client is pointed to or it can be a new location ). 

Assume the new Web Client Work Path is put under E Drive :   E:\HPE Content Manager\Web Client.

3,   Open the hprmServiceAPI.Config file in Windows Note Pad  ,  and modify the value for the following parameters to configure the new Web Client to function against the desired DB and Workgroup server and working paths :

3.1  <hptrim > section


3.2 <Setup> section


Workpath     (workpath for Web Client )

 3.3  <WorkgroupServer  >  section

Workpath       (Workgroup server workpath for Service API )

Name              ( Workgroup server name )

4,  From IIS,  create an Application Pool for the new Web Client ( if the existing application pool will be used,  a new Application pool doesn’t need to be created ).

For creating a new application pool,  please log on as Administrator  > IIS > Right click on Application pools >  Add Application pool >   make sure the .NET Framework version to be used is  v4.0 or above, and make sure Integrated Managed pipline mode is used.

Once the application pool is created,   right click on the Application pool > Advanced Settings > Identity  > make sure the HPE RM Workgroup server log on as Service account is specified.

5, Create a new Web Application and point the Web Application’s Physical location to the new Web Client setup directory ( E:\Web Client )  as well as new application pool.

IIS > right click Sites >  Add WebSite > put in a Web Site name (will be used for internet access ) ,  and  select the newly created or existing application pool for this new site, as well as select the setup directory for the new Web Client for the Physical Path of the new Web Client  web application :

Once the Web Application is created , go to IIS > double click on the new Web Client Web Application > Authentication > make sure only Windows Authentication is enabled.

6, Then restart IIS , and  make sure the Application pool is started . Then user can access the new Web Client via  URL   http ://ServerHostName/newWebClient     (newWebCLient in the string is the Web Site name assigned at step  5 ).
