Migration to newer version of Windows server
We have 4 servers for SM
1) DB - MS SQL
2) SRC (SSO: IIS-TomCat)
All this servers uses Windows 2008 server and now we need migrate to last Windows 2016 server.
if we install a new windows servers, how must i migrate everything to it so that everything works ?
As I see it:
a) Full backup of DB
b) Restore from backup on new windows server
a) Backup config files (just backup all tomcat, src folders, write current IIS settings )
b) Restore folders from backup (or setup and overwrite them from backup)
a) backup LIC file, sm.ini, sm.cfg and all keystore files for SSO
b) Install SM app, and overwrite it by files from backup
a) backup tomcat config files (or backup folder tomcat), and sertificates
b) install and overwrite it by files from backup.
Do i miss something ?
Check HP Support Matrix to make sure OS version is supported by your HPSM version, also check subproducts like MSSQL, IIS and Tomcat.. if everything is supported and you are in a virtual environment you should consider upgrade windows instead... its easier and works like a charm 🙂

If you are using connect-IT or AM the settings and configuration files would be stored in Program Data and Users folder.
If you are storing the eventout records after sending email (using keepmail) you need to keep the scmail.chk file as well. Otherwise this may send the emails again.
Out of curiosity, which version of SM are you using? Because I can see only SM 9.51 and above supports Windows Server 2016. So you may have to upgrade the SM to the latest version with the application compatibility.
Give Kudos if it helps.
1) What settings and configuration files are stored in Program Data and Users folder ?
For example i have 2 folders in Program Data that can be needed:
Users folder - you mean Profile of windows user - what do i need there ?
2) where is this file (scmail.chk) usually located ? (or where can i check for "using keepmail")
