Migrating CCC servers

Migrating CCC servers

Migrating CCC servers

(OP)
Are there any white papers on migrating CCC servers and keeping everything intact?  I can't seem to find anything.  Our distributors are trying to get the information for us as well, but nobody seems to have had a ny experience with it.  Has anyone successfully migrated servers and for the most part keep CCC intact? TIA.

RE: Migrating CCC servers

I haven't exactly migrated, but I have created an exact mirror of one of my customers setups (including CCC) here in my lab to troubleshoot some issues they were having.  Basically, go into the database server supervisor and backup all the databases.  On the new machine, do the same with your freshly installed, blank databases.  Then, copy your good DB's over to the new machine, overwriting the blank DB's and giving them the same file names.  Now, go into database server supervisor in the new server and restore the DB's.

All should be well.  I vaguely remember having to play around with it a bit to get it to work, but don't remember exactly what I had to do - was a while ago.  But, if it was anything major I would recall, you should be OK.

And you can test the results (run some reports for last week) on the new server before you make it live.  Hopefully your call center is closed at least a couple of hours at some point?

Thanks for your input.  That's what I figured, but you never know with CCC.
