Replacement Servers for EV
I am replacing the existing EV 8.02 Servers with new servers. After reading through the Forum it appears the prefered way on migrating to new hardware is to do a "data-only backup" as described in the Admin Guide. My other option was to following the steps as described in Support Doc: 293911. I am using the same server names and IP address. The disk drives use the same driver letter and configuration. The SQL Server and
Vault Storage are on seperate servers.
I have two EV servers on
EV01: Directory, Storage, Task Controller, Shopping, Index services
EV02: Directory , Task Controller, and Shopping services
In reviewing the data-only backups, I am unclear if I am to run Procedure 8: Clearing the Directory Database, since I am using the same server name. And if I do need to run Procedure 8 do I run it for each server? On the data-only backup process what Procedures 1 - 12 do I need to run? Any help is greatly apprciated.
