Migration

Hi Experts,

I need to migrate a Domino R5.05 to another NT box. Is there any good articles or instruction on the net? (I can't find any)And, what do I need to take care of? Especially ip address, it will be different when it move to another server.

Thanks
Kwank

Old question, but, I would migrate first and then upgrade.

This will fix any of the templates etc.

I hope this helps !

Install the Lotus Domino on the new box, but there's no need to configure the thing. Make sure that the program and data directories are the same compared to the old box.
Shut down the old Domino server (not NT).
Copy the datadirectory from the old to the new box.
Copy the notes.ini from the old to the new box (usually located in the lotus domino program directory or the winnt directory (overwrite or delete the one created during the previous install)

Check all documents in the Domino Directory first whether you use the IP-address somewhere

When you use hosts files on your client PC's you have to edit them. When you use connection documents on the clients change the ip-adres in the connection document.

This usually takes care of the thing when only Domino is concerned. When you use other tools on top of Domino (Anti-Virus, backup etc) those probably don't survive the copy and have to be installed and configured again.
In general all Notes applications should work properly unless the developer misbehaved and hardcoded an IP-address....

Good luck

CommView,

Thanks for your input. The steps seems to be same as the notes client migration. Anyway, I alos want to upgrade Domino to 5.08. Do you think I should migrate first or upgrade the old one first?

Thanks,
Kwank

I have an additional suggestion.
In the server document under Ports, there could be your current IP address listed.

Our Domino version is 5.05 now, I want to upgrade it to 5.08 and I also need to migrate it to another NT box. Do you think I should upgrade to 5.08 first then do migration or migrate first then do the upgrade?

Thanks,
Kwank
