HPSIM 7.6 CMS - Migration to new CMS Server OS

Hello,

I need to move the base CMS installation from a Windows 2008 server to a new Windows 2016 server.  The DB instance/server is NOT changing.

I am aware of this guide: Data Migration of an Existing Microsoft Windows CMS to a New Insight Management 7.6 System (hpe.com), however it mentions dropping the SQL DB if using the same server and/or creating a new one.

I've done a couple of moves in the past and I don't recall having to do this.  I recall installing SIM and simply pointing it the existing DB/server, then re-creating any customizations I had (but it was a fairly older version - maybe 7.1?)

Any tips, shortcuts, etc?  Anyone else done only a CMS move and not the DB?

Thanks

Hi,

Thanks..  I've decided to use this opportunity to start fresh and re-discover what's left of our old HPE equipment.  It would take me less time vs. cleaning up the current DB and fixing the known issues.

Thanks again.

Thanks. I ended up just asking for a new database and installing fresh and re-discovering my devices.  It took a lot less time (I think) and i didn't need to have a DBA available to load data (after I was given the new DB).
