    EPO 4.6.9 to EPO 5.3 Database Migration

    humph

      Situation:

      I am currently running Mcafee EPO 4.6.9 on Server 2003 SP2 with SQL express 2005.

      I want to Migrate (old) EPO 4.6.9 running on Server 2003 to (new) EPO 5.3 running Server 2012 R2 with SQL express 2012.

      The new 2012 R2 Server that we want to migrate it to will have a new name and also a new IP address.

      Question:

      Do I have to upgrade SQL 2005 to SQL 2008 before I run/use the Upgrade Compatibility Utility to migrate my settings,database,etc to new 2012 R2 server?

      If I use the Upgrade Compatibility Utility that comes with EPO 5.3 installer to Migrate to the new server will it also preserve/carry over my (2005) database as well? or how can I preserve/move my old database to the new server during the migration.

       

      I have already read some of the migration documentation (please don’t point me to them) I just need some clarifications or feedback from someone who has done it before I attempt the migration. Thanks much
