Guys, your thoughts please.

I need to move a production CSA6 environment to a new server (new hardware) which is using a different (new) IP adres.

What is the best way to go about this? We are using a local database.

Should we install the new server and import the data from the old one?

If 6.1 would make it easier we can upgrade first...

I believe migration to a new MC might be simpler.

Install 6.0.1 on the new server, import the settings from the 6.0 server and migrate the hosts.

Ok, but how do i go about this? Since the new server also has a new IP adres, how do i migrate from the old one to the new one?

Can i export settings & database on the old one?

I can't find this scenario in the documentation.

Unfortunately it looks as though 6.0 and 6.0.1 were considered the same version so there is no prepare_60_migration.exe package to help migrate from 6.0.

My apologies.

There are other ways to do it but they are cumbersome.

Been looking into this further.

Since we are using a 'remote database' (although SQL is installed on the same server) the backup configuration tool is not available.

Where does CSA keep all the config/licenses/logs? Is that all in the SQL database?

So if i want to install a new CSA server, i just take the new hardware, move/copy the SQL database, and install CSA?
