moving lms 2.6 to new hardware

I have LMS 2.6 installed, the entire CW package...DM, IPM, RME, etc. It is working well and currently there are no additional updates we can apply (meaning it is all current). We need to move to a new server because we are low on memory and low on disk space and it's just cheaper to replace than augment, since we have some servers coming off line that will do the job for us.

My question is, how can I migrate all the 'stuff' (databases, etc) that is the culmination of months worth of work? I see many articles on migrating from prior versions...

Also can I get CD images of the entire package to install from? I inherited the current set up so to update I just use the software center but, I won't have that on the new box, I'm going to have to do some kind of base install.

Thank you!

Re: moving lms 2.6 to new hardware

Migrating the data is easy. Just backup the current server using the standard CiscoWorks backup, and save off the resulting directory. When you have the new server up and running with the same version of LMS, then restore the backup.

As for getting the CDs, if you are entitled to them, you can go to and request them to be shipped to you. Else you will have to talk to your sales team.


Re: moving lms 2.6 to new hardware

In the case of LMS 2.2 and the new server has a different hostname and IP addr, I'm getting the following error:

nms-(/opt/CSCOpx)->./MDC/bin/ccraccess -removeResource Core Custom Custom " " " " HostName

REMOVERESOURCE[CCREntry[Core,Custom,Custom, , ,HostName,,,]]: CCRResponse[1;2 Unable to remove entry CCREntry[Core,Custom,Custom, , ,HostName,,,].]

nms-(/opt/CSCOpx)->./MDC/bin/ccraccess -getResource Core Custom Custom " " " " HostName

You have spaces in your quotes. The actual command is:

ccraccess -removeResource Core Custom Custom "" "" HostName
