Migration Guide

Updated April 6, 2017

 

Do I need to migrate?

You may need to migrate your products or SQL database to new servers or SQL versions for many reasons.

Is this your situation:

  • My product version hardware, server OS, or SQL requirements may have changed. See the minimum requirements for your product and the multi-module guidelines to start planning.
  • I may need new servers for space and better performance. For example, your SQL or Flow Storage Database server may be running out of space.
  • I may need to migrate products to a shared or dedicated server. For example, NCM 7.4.X and NPM 11.5.X merged to work from the same SQL database and main server/poller. This may require an extended or new servers.
  • I may be adding a new database. For example, NTA 4.X adds a new Flow Storage Database that works best on a dedicated server.
  • I want to move to a new server type. For example, moving to VMs from physical servers may be a better for your environment.

Migrating during an upgrade? We recommend preparing your new servers and planning the move as part of your upgrade process.
