Move existing HP SIM 6.3 installation to new server.

Hi!

 

How do I migrate/move an existing HP SIM installation to a new server?

I found a whitepaper describing this for HP SIM 5.3 , but I can't find it for 6.3 (which is the version I have instelled).

 

All I want to do is to move the SIM installation to a new server.

The database is already configured on a remote SQL-server.

Re: Move existing HP SIM 6.3 installation to new server.

You could use the data migration tool to export the DB and re-import on the new installation. I don't think you can simply export the DB and attcach it to the other installation as the server names etc. will not match.

If my post was helpful please award me Kudos! or Points :)

Re: Move existing HP SIM 6.3 installation to new server.

I want to do the same thing as well but couldn't find any documentation. I want to have the new hpsim version 7 when it comes out. I have the current latest and greatest version 6.3 with hotfix on a wondows 2008r2 box on a bl 460c g7. Can I just install the new version on top of my current version and will it all mesh together and see my sql database. My sql for sim is also on a remote server.

 

Now i'm guessing this is a whole different story if I want to have a a whole new installation on a whole new separate server and point it to the my remote sql database.

 

Wish there was a document for both the procedures.
