We currently have ACS 3.2 running on a Windows 2000 server. We want to move it to a Windows 2003 server and upgrade to 4.1. What's the best way to go about this? I have install CDs for v3.3.3 and an upgrade cd for v4.1. Should I install v3.3.3 on the W2K3 box, upgrade it to 4.1 then try to export the database from the 3.2 box and import? Or can I install 3.3.3, synchronize it with the 3.2, break the syncronization and upgrade the 3.3.3 box to 4.1? I can't seem to find any documentation that covers an upgrade path with respect to new hardware. I'm a n00b at ACS to boot.
Re: Upgrade questions - ACS software to new hardware
I've recently done the same upgrade. Make a backup of your ACS database from System Configuration. On the new hardware install ACS v3.3.3. Copy the file created from the first step and use ACS restore. Finally upgrade ACS to version 4.1.
