Transfer the System

Jump to solution

Hi All,

I registered new ePO and transfered all clients from old ePO to new ePO.

All of the products display at the Product Tab but I only deployed DLP and ENS to new ePO. What is your suggestion to follow? for example, how can I remove these other modules from the clients or Product Tab?

Also, at the DLP User Sessions Tab displays old ePO evidence path. How can I change evidence path?

Also, if you give me information of Transfer the System to client transfer to the new ePO, I will be grateful.

Best regards and thank you.

Hi All,

If you transfer the client from epo to new epo, you can not see the client on the system tree anymore at old epo.

you dont need any config at the client side.

all of the config and modules (like web control and firewall..)exist at client. If you dont have module at new epo, you will not control client. You need deploy modules what you want to epo.

Well to answer your first question you can either check in the products\extensions in the new epo and remove them via the normal method, you can uninstall the components via the ripper which you can get from the enterprise support portal, or you can build a package with eedk which launches the silent uninstall commands.

Check the product guide on how to setup the evidence path.

Not sure what your last question is asking.

I opened this discussion that would like to learn much more tips for Transfer the System that you have experience.

I wanted to place my experience in the written form. It is true now in 2018 as it was when the transfer feature was introduced to ePO a long time ago. On customer engagements, I have to balance the particular need vs time and potential success. I love success and avoid rolling the dice for success. If you decide to use the transfer approach your mileage certainly could vary. Some customers have no issue at all transferring systems from an older ePO to a newer one. Other clients not so much.

Note: Laying out the groundwork is very important but does not always yield success.

First things first. What could go wrong? 

  1. You select transfer for 10 machines (example). 5 disappear from the system tree and start their way to the new ePO server. What about the other 5? Maybe they went and maybe they didn't.
  2. The second phase is system accountability. Did they all make it to their destination? Some did and the others never got there intact. Now the 5 limbo clients try to go back to the source ePO server. They don't always get back to where they left.

The concept is great but as KB79283 tries to get across is what I just mentioned. Go slow and measure your success. You ready for this? You could have the system make it to the destination but have an abandoned clone on the source ePO, not fun. Now your truing up systems between the two ePO servers.

I like the commandeer approach. Deploy agents to the systems that already have them and as the name implies, install a new MA to a system that already has an agent to another ePO system.

For those of you who used transfer and it ran 100%, fantastic. After deploying around 10M nodes domestically since 1999 here are my parting thoughts. Take your time, test your methods and understand your approach. Oh yes always proceed with care.
