EPO 4.6 > 5.1 and moving SQL


Sorry if this has been covered but I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction of the KB article.

We have 4.6 installed with a local copy of SQL

I want to install 5.1 with a remote copy of SQL.

I would like to transfer all users, policies and systems.

Any ideas ?

Re: EPO 4.6 > 5.1 and moving SQL

I don't know of a specific KB for migrating the database but it's pretty straight forward:

1. Backup a copy of your current local database

2. Restore the database to your remote database server

3. Backup / snapshot your ePO system just in case

4. Run the ePO installer and tell it to connect to the new remote server
