I have got a stand-alone Unity server. The customer wants to change the server. What is the best way to store the voice messages, User greetings and all the personal phone settings and restore them in the new server?<br>Two cases<br>1- If we go with unified messaging(all the mailboxes already exist) <br>2- Just go with stand alone on a bigger server(all the mailboxes need to be created)<br>Thanx <br><br><br>Sean Poure<br>NEC-Voice Engineering<br>Sr. Systems Engineer<br>714 4846275<br>
Any reason you can't do a full system backup of the box and restore it onto a new box? For a POV install this should be doable, right?
Another option if you have a stand alone box (Im assuming POV here, not an all in one UM config) you want to upgrade, you can use my Export/Import tool to get all Unity information (including greetings, voice names and the like) and port it to a new box. This gets everything but does NOT get user messages. Youll have to export information to PST files and import them.
Weve done a few of these types of upgrades recently using this tool and it works reasonably well. Normally they will install a 2nd Unity server on bigger/better hardware, install Unity, import the data from the running server and then leave a few lines going into the old Unity server for folks to check messages before retiring it. This is nice since you have a backup should something go wrong with the new box at cut over time and you dont have to port all the messages over just leave it there until folks have gotten their messages out of it.
In your situation, thats probably the direction Id go
If you're interested in using the Import/Export let me know and I'll email it to you. I still haven't put it on my web page because of goofy little issues with UM imports at this point and I'm a little scared to drop it out there into the public domain until I've seen it work smoothly on lots of UM sites in the field. POV is pretty easy and safe, however

The below trick might come handy when you have to add a new node to a cluster but you don't have or is unsure of the security password for the publisher. This procedure has been around for ages.
