Easier Way to Migrate Postoffices to New Server

Postby calfordgreen » Wed Nov 23, 2016 12:15 am

Hi,

I have been using ME Pro for a long time now, almost 10 years I think. The biggest issue for me has always been migrating Post Offices to a New Server. Over time, servers become old, the OS becomes extinct/Out of support, or we just need to rebalance.

It is quite easy to migrate someone to a Mail Enable if they are using a different product, but if already using ME on 1 server, it is a pain to move a Post Office to another server. The article https://www.mailenable.com/kb/content/article.asp?ID=ME020387 starts by saying the process is quite involved...

It doesn't have to be fancy. It can be just as simple as selecting a Post Office from a list, you build a ZIP file that we then FTP to the new server and UnZip and then run a process on the new server that sets everything up...

Many thanks... I have 1 server with almost 200 Post Offices on it running an old W2K8 server and having to try and migrate 1 Post Office a night for a very long time :(

thanks for reading...
