GW 2012 to GW2014 Migration

Hello all!

New GW admin at smaller company.

Current setup - GW 2012 on Win 2003

Moving to - GW 2014 on Win 2008

Set up newer box with same naming conventions.

The FID Editor doesn't seem to work with newer FIDs/GW.

What do I need to do to move them over (all on same Domain)? Would archiving the old user data and then importing it into GW 2014 be possible with different FIDs?

Thanks in advance.

No need to export/import any users. You can simply move over the entire data and upgrade by installing the software.
Okay, it *is* a bit trickier than that in detail.
You may want to check Danita's upgrade guide, available from http://www.caledonia.net/

A couple of things to note:

- We require Windows 2008 R2 at a minimum, not the original 2008
release.

- Microsoft is ending "mainstream" support for 2008 R2 in one week, so
it may be worth going with 2012 or 2012 R2 instead.

Thanks Buckesfelf and Jmarton!

Just to get me started, since ConsoleOne doesn't work with 2014, what should I use to "move" the data to the new eDir/GW 2014 box?

As for compatibility - I was going to use the 2008 r2 dc, but will go with 2012 for support.

Hi

I second Uwe Buckesveld's suggestion of getting a copy of Dantia's upgrade guide.

You would use DBCopy to copy your data to the new server.

Cheers,
Laura Buckley
