Moving MAS90 3.21 To A New Server

Moving MAS90 3.21 To A New Server

Moving MAS90 3.21 To A New Server

We are a registered user of MAS90 3.21. We bought it over 20 years ago and have since lost all the CD's. Does anyone know where I can purchase a set of MAS90 Version 3.21 installation CD's?

Thank you in advance.

RE: Moving MAS90 3.21 To A New Server

I have a backup of the whole MAS90 directory on the NT server. Any suggestions on how we can move to a Server 2003 32-Bit server?

RE: Moving MAS90 3.21 To A New Server

Wow, what a coincidence. After many months of a staged server migration, I just did a move yesterday (11/1/14) of MAS 90 for Windows 3.71 from an SBS 2003 server to Server 2012 R2 Standard. This procedure only works with MAS 90 for Windows 3.71 and maybe prior versions, but apparently nothing newer.

The key seems to be that **IF** you have no customizations of the programming (whatever that means...I am an IT guy, not a programmer), then you can copy the entire folder to a new server. You need to assign the Everyone group Full Control permissions to its parent folder on the new server, and then copy the contents to the new folder. My folder structure is D:\90W\MAS90 on the old server, and E:\90W is the new parent, so I assigned Full Control to E:\90W and all subfolders, and copied the whole D:\90W folder's contents from the old server to the new one.

I thought that I would need to re-run the workstation setups, but on a hunch, I asked my client's MAS 90 support people if just changing the mapped M: drive from old server to new server would work, because the shortcut just points to the mapped drive. Sure enough, changing the login script to delete the old mapping and re-map to the new server was all that was needed.
