Going to do a Unity upgrade and have new server. Current running is 4.0(4). Going to 4.2.
Would like to do DIRT and blow it away and build on new server with same name and ip and such.
Is it possible just do do the resture and away we go or is this not possible?
Any suggestions are welcome.
Yes, it can be done, just remember that you need to restore in the exact same version as the backup (including ES if you have), so you have two options:
1) Upgrade your current server to 4.2, backup the server. Install 4.2 in the new server and restore.
2) Backup your server, install 4.0(4) in the new server, restore and then upgrade to 4.2
For future posts, Unity questions should go to the Unified Communications forum.
don't forget to pull a drive when you do this to ensure you have a complete back on one drive.
