800xa 5.1 Harmony servers replacement
Hi. We are trying to replace redundant old Harmony servers with the new ones. OS version will be upgraded from Win server 2007 to 2008 R2 and computer name will change. Does anybody know what is the best procedure of replacing Harmony servers with different computer name being online, what configuration other than backing up and restoring server database has to be changed and in what order?
All of the questions are answered in the 800xA Upgrade manuals. I'm assuming you are on an older 800xA 5.1 A or B versions? Top change to Windows server 2008 you will also need to change the 800xA versions, as older versions will not function in newer OS's. I believe you would changing from Windows 2003 Server? Eitherway, you will also have troubles finding PC's with drivers that support Windows 2008 server anyway. So please access the upgrade manuals, release notes and life cycle documents available in the ABB library. Read them thoroughly and you will know what you can do.
