Server update with clean install, DP migrate

Hi members,

 

I would like to upgrade our backup server to windows server 2019 with a clean installation.
WHAT do you recommend? I don't want the Internel Database to slip. How can I complete the update without any problems?

 

Thank in advance.

Sorry, I try to write more clearly 🙂

 

I would like to upgrade my server to Windows 2019 and I would like to migrate / move DP so that DataProtector remains intact. All files should remain and your database should not be damaged.

Hello @karesz55

There are some things you need to consider. 

If you want to move the server from one to another, be sure to have the same DP version in both, you can't mount a DP 9.09 into a DP 10.70. Also, the OS from old a new server should be the same family. In your case, from Windows to Windows. 

Additionally, and to see what method or steps I can suggest, will you keep the same IP and name or will be different?

Re: Server update with clean install, DP migrate

Hello @Victor_F_DP,

We have version 10.20. I want to keep that too.
The server name and IP remain the same.

We will be upgrading from Windows Server 2012 to 2019.

Thanks in advance. 🙂

Hello

It shouldn't be so difficult then

1º Install new Windows 2019 server with DP 10.20

2º Use command omnidbutil -writedb for to export IDB

3º Move files created to new server

4º Use command omnidbutil -readdb for to import IDB

5º Move all DCBF files to new server

6º Export clients from old cell manager

7º Import clients to new cell manager. You will need to recreate secure chanel using "omnicc -secure_comm -configure_peer" servername -overwrite

8º For to transfer schedules (Legacy scheduler), integration files and reports you must copy files into those folders.

C:\ProgramData\OmniBack\config\server\BarLists

The same for the rest of folders

Datalists
Copylists
Integ
Rptgroups
Rptschedules

It should be enough

My advise please after that upgrade to DP 10.60 or 10.70 always try to use last version.

Best Regards
