11th hour questions before my EV 9.02 migration/upgrade to EV 10.0.3 on May 28

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Next Tuesday, May 28  is  when I'll be upgrading Enterprise Vault  for Exchange from 9.0.2 to 10.0.3.  Call it the last minute jitters but a few nagging questions have come up.

Our current server set up is pretty basic:  Old Server  with data connected to a old SAN. We'll be migrating to a new server connected to a new SAN.  The drives are mapped the same ( C for OS and application E for Enterprise Vault data).

1. I'm assumming I move the data off the old server's E Drive to the new servers E drive after I run the SSMW on the old server  but before I run the SSMW to import on the new server, right?

2. Do you recommend I do the DNS Alias change before I run the SSMW or after I  run the SSMW but before  importing the settings?

3. Other than reversing all the tasks done prior to running the SSMW and all the recommend post migration tasks, is there anything else I have forgotten?

 

Thanks,

 

Rick

If you follow the Server Settings Migration Wizard doc you should be just fine.

1. I'm assumming I move the data off the old server's E Drive to the new servers E drive after I run the SSMW on the old server  but before I run the SSMW to import on the new server, right?

Is this the Index and Vault Store data?  If so, yes.

2. Do you recommend I do the DNS Alias change before I run the SSMW or after I  run the SSMW but before  importing the settings?

You change the alias after you create the Load file on the existing EV Server and before you import the load file on the new server.

3. Other than reversing all the tasks done prior to running the SSMW and all the recommend post migration tasks, is there anything else I have forgotten?

Make sure you take good backups prior to starting.  :)
