Migrate SCM to New Server


We have SCM 5.8 and need to move this off a W2K3 32bit box and on to a
W2K8 64bit box. I'm not finding any information on the best way to do
this. Anybody have any links to documentation or have experience doing
this?

Thanks.

Re: Migrate SCM to New Server


I was able to contact NetIQ support on this. I'll paste their
instructions here so folks can find it in the future if needed.
------------------------------------------

The process to move SCM is to copy the install files to the machine you
want to install on. Run the install locally. First you will install
our database on the new server by running the install and choosing only
the database. This will create the accounts we need and grant the
proper access. Later you will restore your database that you previously
backed up.

Then you will copy the install files to the machine where core services
and the console will be installed. Run the install and choose only the
console and Netiq Core Services. It will ask you where the database is
installed. Once the install is complete, then you can restore your
database. You will then need to run the password utility that is located
in /Program files/Netiq/Secure Configuration Manager/Core Services/bin
to sync the password between core services and the database. Then
restart the Netiq Core Services service and login to SCM.

To move domain keys from one Core Services to another, complete the
following steps:

On the Core Services computer that registered the agents, open the
ExportDomainKeys.bat file. By default, this file is located in the
Program Files\NetIQ\Secure Configuration Manager\Core Services\bin
folder.

At the Filename prompt, type the name of the file in which to store the
domain keys, and then press Enter. You can enter only the file name,
which will be saved in the same folder, or you can enter a full path and
file name.

At the Password prompt, type a password that the other Core Services
will use to access the domain keys for importing, and press Enter.

For each Core Services computer that requires access to the agents
registered on the first Core Services, complete the following steps:

Run the ImportDomainKeys.bat file.

At the Filename prompt, type the name of the file where the domain keys
are stored and press Enter.

At the Password prompt, type the password to access the domain keys, and
then press Enter.

Restart the NetIQ Core Services service.
