Migrating from 4.4 to 5.0 with SQL database - ORF Forums

Migrating from 4.4 to 5.0 with SQL database RSS Back to forum


Today I have 1 server with ORF 4.4 installed.
We will migrate to new environment and will have 2 exchange 2010 servers with hub-transport roles at fail-over array. I want to install ORF 5.0 at both servers – and share settings beetween them by SQL database

The question is:
1. How i can move license from old server to new one? Should I buy a second license for second server?
2. How I can migrate settings from 1 server running ORF 4.4 to a couple of new servers with ORF 5.0 and setting stored ot SQL database?

1. I replied to you in email (I'd rather not enclose any information about your current license in our public forum).
2. See our Migration Guide for detailed instructions - http://vamsoft.com/support/docs/how-tos/migration-5.0

@Krisztián Fekete (Vamsoft): I'v read all your guides - at migration guide U wrote that i should Back up and restore setting by copying files.

But old server with 4.4 version DONT use external database, and 2 new servers MUST use external database to share settings. How i can migrate settings from files to DB?

@vladimir.lebedinsky: You should first prepare the SQL database for ORF (see our guides for instructions at http://vamsoft.com/r?o-db-guides), then you should migrate the current databases of the old server (stored in Private Local Database files with .abs extension in the ORF directory) to the SQL server using our Database Converter Tool (http://vamsoft.com/support/tools/database-converter). Finally, configure both ORF instances to use the SQL database by switching from the Private Local Database option to SQL and setting the connection string.
