Migrating from EPO4.0 to a new server on EPO4.5


I have EPO4.0 running live on a x32 Windows 2003 / x32 SQL 2005 server platform.

I have setup EPO4.5 on a new x64 Windows 2008 R2 / x64 SQL 2008 R2 server platform.

What is the optimal method in migrating/switching over the clients to the new server platform? including polices/software/extensions, etc.?

Thank you in advance for your replies.

2 options, you can uprgrade your 4.0 server to 4.5 and use "transfer agents" function (found in the epo product guide) which lets you highlight the machines and send them to the new 4.5 server.....or you can redeploy agents from your new 4.5 server which will overwrite the agents out there and point them to your new 4.5 server.

Would both of these options move the policies over as well or do you need to recreate those policies on the new box?

You'll need to recreate the policies - you can do this by either exporting and importing them, or using the policy sharing feature in ePO 4.5.
