Copy system to new server

You may need run a program from epicor to unregister vantage from the
clients registry. If your new server has a different name than your prior
one this may needed to be done. I ran into this a couple of years ago on 3.0
adding a new server to move vantage over to. We were using Win98 on the
clients. One of the dead give aways is if short cuts created in Vantage
don't work.

Subject: [Vantage] Copy system to new server...


Good morning gang:

I'm presently at 3.0. I bought a new server. I want to copy/transfer
my vantage system as is to the new server, then upgrade to 4.0 and
eventually 5.0 on the new server.

I don't want to "ghost" the whole shebang (NT, Backup Exec, etc.)
because I would prefer to do a fresh clean install of everything.
Actually I'd like to just INSTALL not UPGRADE vantage and somehow apply
the current data file(s) to that server.

Okay. Is anyone familiar with this type of install/upgrade? What're
the general thoughts before I just go and do something half-cocked?

Thanks for any input a thousand times in advance!!

My 2 cents. Unless there are functional reasons not to do so , I'd rather
ghost. Awfully big job to redo everything done over time with potentials for
opening security holes. We've always ghosted whenever we changed the
server, but thats been a while. However, taking a lesson from trial vantage
installs, you should be able to copy over the .db file and the .bi file and
be functional.

The only thing that you will have to make sure of is that you apply the
patches to Vantage before you move your database. Hopefully you still have
the patches. Make sure you copy over all of the files from your userform,
vbp, ud, etc. directories. On 3.0 this is a fairly easy operation. Just
copy the dcdv7.* files to your new server.

When we did this with 4.0, we installed a fresh version of Vantage on the
new server, then restored an online backup of the old server to the new
server. You also have to copy over any custom files you have such as forms.
