Migration from one server to another

There are four ways to migrate ESET Security Management Center from one server to another (these scenarios can be used when reinstalling your ESMC Server):

Clean Installation - same IP address - The new installation does not use the previous database from the old ESMC Server and keeps the original IP address.

Clean Installation - different IP address - The new installation does not use the previous database from the old ESMC Server and has a different IP address.

Migrated Database - same IP address - Database migration can only be performed between two similar database types (from MySQL to MySQL or from MSSQL to MSSQL) and similar alike versions of ESMC.

Migrated Database - different IP address - Database migration can only be done performed between two like database types (from MySQL to MySQL or from MSSQL to MSSQL) and two like versions of ESMC.

When adding new client computers, use a new Certification Authority to sign the Agent certificates. This is done because an imported CA cannot be used to sign new peer certificates, it can only authenticate ESET Management Agents of client computers that were migrated.
