hi Mehmet,

1) On  physical MCS servers 8.0.3, take a DRS Backup of the Publisher

2) On  the VMWare where  Pub is  to be on, do a fresh

install of 8.0.3 on it using the same Hostname/IP Address of the existing Pub.

3) Once you have completed the fresh install of the new Pub on VMWare,

restore the Backup that you took from the old Pub.

4) Build the new Subscribers on VMWare using the same Hostname/IP Addresses

of the existing Subscribers.

Here is some documentation on it:

Hope this helps!

Thanks,

Karthik

Thanks Karthik for your replay.

My sub is on VMware right now. I am worried about didnt affect any users.

If I did that issue I will shut the sub( on VMware) and pub( on phisical) after get backup of publisher.

fresh install pub and open the pub and sub.

-And I thinkf If I shut the pub ( not sub) and fresh install the sub with the same username and ip with old pub. Maybe that time the sub will get the new pubs database( empty databa).

What to do you think about that.
