Systems Management Question
Migrating SMA To new a physical box?
So, my org has had a new box sitting on a rack for the last few years. It's just been sitting on the initial setup screen. Our Kace admin recently left unexpectedly, and all of the work has been moved on to me. One of my first tasks is to setup and migrate this new box. So far the networking info for the new box has been added, but I had a few questions.
1. For the license key, am I using the same license key that's setup on my old box, or would a new one have come with the new box when it arrived? I should be able to get access to the old admin's emails if needed, but it's not something I have immediately on had. I can tell you that my current license is valid for a few more years still.
2. I was just going to follow the KB article 119863 on the Quest site. It makes it seem as though I just need to update the new box to match the old, backup my current databases, turn off the old box, and then upload the database to the new box. Is this correct, or am I totally wrong in this assumption? The article makes it seem as though all addressing info will flip to the info on the old appliance.
Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.
