Calendar Server Migration

Submitted by ajohn on Fri, 01/27/2012 - 09:17

Hi Everyone,
I am completely new at this so please forgive my ignorance. We are looking into moving the Calendar Server from one machine to another. The plan is to move it into the Resource Tier. Ideally we would like to copy the files over and start the service(still researching how to actually start it) on the new server. Is that possible to do or do we have to reinstall it on the new machine. The services that we are traying to move are Calendar Express, Messenger Express and Communications Express as the 3 of them are linked. I know that I will have to use configman and point evertyhing over to the new server but is there anything else that I have to know about.

Thanks for all your help,
Ash

Luminis Version:

I would do a new install on the target machine, and then with both services down export the data from old and import it into the new. Copying files has never worked for us on anything like this.
