Migrate to new Windows Server.

A simple way to migrate, where new server has same IP address:

1. Stop your original server. (This will make all devices start buffer data).

2. Make a backup + restore to new server as described in this guide.

3. Check that you new server works.

4. Move new server to IP address of old server. Now all devices will start sending up buffered data.


A more advanced method to migrate, where new server has new IP address:

A useful tool for keeping the servers in sync during migration is the DataForward plugin.

DataForward the unmodified data sent from a device to one or many other servers. http://forum.gpsgate.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=16118

1. Setup DataForward on your original server to send data to the new (not yet existing server).

2. Stop your original server. (This will make all devices start buffer data).

3. Make a backup + restore to new server as described in this guide.

4. Check that you new server works.

5. Start your original server again. Now all devices will start sending up buffered data. And DataForward makes sure data comes to both original and new server.

6. Start migrating applications/devices to send data directly to new server.
