EV migration to new server
We are currently gathering information to upgrade our Enterprise Vault to 64-bit hardware. Our current version is 9.0.1 and it's running on 32-bit Windows Server 2003. The new hardware will be running on Windows Server 2008 R2.
There is a lot of documentation regarding this migration. One thing I cannot find is how to deal with using the same server name for the source and the target server. As we all know, this is a no-go for Active Directory. What would be the sequence to upgrade to new hardware and when should I install the EV software itself?
My idea is:
1 Create target server with temporary name
2 Disable all services on source server
3 Move all data to target server
4 Install EV software on target server
5 Connect all SAN disks to target server with same drive letters as on source server
5 Power off source server
6 Rename target server
Does this give issues on SQL or do I need to do it in another sequence.
Any help will be appreciated.
