ePO migration to New Server

We are currently running ePO 5.3 on a Windows 2008 R2 server. Obviously we want to move away from this onto a 2019 server and ePO 5.10. Here is the steps we believe will work, just wondering if anyone else has done a similar migrations in case there is anything I have missed. Build & Configure new Windows 2019 Server Change Firewall Rules to mirror existing ePO Server Modify GPO to mirror existing ePO Server policies Install SQL Server Express 2019 on server above + Management Studio Configure SQL Server to Listen for TCP/IP + Named Pipes and Port 1433 Set SQL Server & Browser services to Automatic Install ePO 5.10 Install update 9 Install Packages & Extensions Export objects and data - items such as dashboards, server tasks, policy assignments Export 1024 & 2048 Security Keys from old ePO Server Import above to new Server Connect new server to old server Transfer option for clients should be enabled Test client transfer Reinstall the Agent Handler on DMZ.

Re: ePO migration to New Server

Hello @ 

Thanks for your post.

Please refer the below KB article for the system transfer from one ePO Server to another ePO Server.

While registering the ePO please select the ePO 5.3.x as you will not be able to see the ePO 5.10 and do the test connection.

Systems will get transferred in flat structure.

Once that done you can create the group / sub-group and move the machines.

Also please refer the below KB article for policy transfer.

Please make sure that extensions are on the same version or on the updated version.

For installing the ePO 5.10 on new Server please download the IIS Crypto Tool

Execute IIS Crypto Tool>Best Practices>Apply and the reboot the server.

Please check the below KB article for ciphers:
