RE: shifting systems


That's close enough to my problem, see related question in

From what I read to switch/shift PCs from one server to another, you need to uninstall the agent and reinstall the new FramePkg.exe...

Now you don't necessary need to switch PCs from one server to another. One solution is to give the NEW server the IP adress and FQDN of the OLD server...

The agents will blindly connect to the new server and don't need to know what version of ePO is running.

hope it helps

RE: shifting systems

Most servers now have 2 (or more) NICs, just multi-home the new box.
