Upgrade EV 8.x from 32bit OS to EV 10.x OS-64 bit for Domino 8.5.3
We are planning to upgrade our EV Server for domino 8.x to 10.x for supporting the domino ver8.5.3. We have also plan to move our EV database from SQL server 2005 installed on the OS Windows 2003 to SQL 2008 with OS windows 2008 Server Enterprise R2.
Our current EV deployed on the VMware 5.x virtual environment. We have installed Enterprise vault 8.x on virtual Server with OS Windows 2003 Server and SQL Server 2005 Enterprise installed on the another virtual Server with OS windows 2003 Server for Enterprise vault database. We also have Vault store virtual disk and index virtual disk on the same VMware data store for EV Server inside Windows 2003 Virtual Server.
My EV Server 8.x for Domino performing the Mails archiving, journal archiving and discovery accelerator task.
As per my understanding for full fill my requirement. I have plan to follow the below step.
Step 1. Upgrade EV 8.x to EV 9.x on the same Virtual Server with OS 2003 Server.
Step 2. After upgrade EV 8.x to 9.x. Plan to move upgraded EV 9.X directory database from SQL server 2005 (windows 2003 Server) to SQL Server 2008 (Windows 2008 Enterprise Server.
Step3. Run the EV 10. X Migration utility and export the EV setting from 32 bit Windows 2003 Server.
Step4. Installed New Windows 2008 Enterprise R2 virtual Server and after full fill EV pre requirement, installed EV 10.x binary on the Server but not perform the EV configuration and import the EV 9.x setting.
Note – here is my question. Can I move the Vault store virtual disk used for Archiving data and Index virtual disk from EV server 9.x (Windows 2003 Virtual Server) to New EV 10. X Windows 2008 Enterprise r2 Virtual Server with same drive letter? Would this move will provide the archive data access same like old EV server with new server.
If no than what should I do.
