    Use EPO 5.1 Compatibility Tool

    northomsk

      Hi all

       

      A question

      Got EPO on old server running 32bit and external db

      Like to migrate settings to new server 64bit 2008R2,  local 2012 DB express

      Running the Compatibility Tool create a migration.zip

       

      Now I have seen different scenarios

      Got a backup of DB from old server

      SQL express 2012 installed

      On the new server 2008 R2 will I run migrate first and then install EPO 5.1  ?

       

      Or install EPO 5.1 first and then run tool ?

       

      thanks in advance

            Hello,

                      The compatibility tool is run on an existing server to make a determination if you can safely migrate from your existing epo server version to 5.x.

             

            I dont think that was your real question though. You sound like you want to port your dbase to another new epo server. Before we walk down the anticipated road here are a few questions first?

             

            1. What products do you currently have deployed?

            2. How many systems (nodes) do you manage?

            3. Do you have any repositories?

             

            Your other question sounded like you wanted to back up your policies. Goto the policy catalog and backup all policies for all products And dont forget mcafee agent policy too.

             

            Depending on your answers may be either straight forward or be more complicated. We will cross that bridge at that time.
