Moving Peachtree 2010 data to new server

We are running a network version of Peachtree Accounting 2010 installed on Server A.  I have three clients that connect to the data share on Server A.

Server A is old just like me and needs to be replaced.  I created a new Server B, a virtual server in VMware ESX 4, running Server 2003 R2 32bit.  I did a clean install of Peachtree 2010 with the install mode set as a network server only with NO local client.

The install on Server A has been an upgrade after upgrade type of migration from PCA 2005 up through 2010.  The folder structure is a little non-conventional so I wanted to do a clean install on Server B and move our company data from Server A to Server B.

How do I do this?

I can backup my Companies on Server A from one of the client PCs but I have no way to restore to Server B since their is no client on the server.

PeachTree is using the Pervasive database engine, which needs three things -- a set of database files, a set of DDF files, and a System DSN created on the server.

The easiest way to do this would be to use PeachTree from a workstation to fully back up, and then restore, the database.

Failing that, you can do it manually.  First, create the new database on the new server.  Then, copy over your data files to the new server, overwriting the database currently there.  Then, copy over the data dictionary files.  Finally, start the ODBC Administrator on each server and look for any PeachTree dataase DSN's.  They should exist on both servers, unless you skipped the part of creating the database first, iun which case you might have to manually create one.
