Best way to move McAfee ePO 5.9.1 to another server with new Operating System

Jump to solution

We have ePO 5.9.1 running on Windows 2008R2. We want to move this to a newer server running either Windows 2012R2 or Windows 2016.

I had previously tested creating a new server with Windows 2012, installing SQL server and then restoring the current ePO database. Then during the install of ePO, I selected the option to restore from a database recovery. This seemed to work.

 

Just want to know if this is the best approach.

I'd have used the migration tool which comes with ePO

Yes, that is the recommended option.  The migration utility mentioned is for moving to another server and upgrading at the same time, but for same version migrations, you have to follow the procedure you did.  Glad it was successful!
