We are planning to move FMSA v12 hosting to a more powerful server and I have prepared a sequence of to-do list to ensure everything is covered and done in the correct order.
Our migration includes installing FMSA v12 30-days trial to the new server and will only move the license to the new machine when everything is tested.
We intend to swap the IPs of the 2 machines, so that our users' links in IWP and FM GO are not required to change.
Has anyone of you gone through the same migration? Or is there anyone can help to comment on the sequence?
I am not sure about the restrictions and number of databases the trial version can host and whether the license should be activated before or after the IPs swapping.
Before Day 1
Prepare the new server:
Backup old server (see here page 54):
Move to new server:
