Hi,

Ive replacing a server that has Sage Accounts 2014 on it.

I am having a ding dong with Sage Support at the minute as to the "correct way" and the "best practice way".

They are telling me i have to install the accounts software onto the new server. It has to be done this way, period.

Im saying i just want to put the Data folder on the server and share that and dont see the need to have to install the software  - they are saying its not the way to do it.

What are the experiences from you guys that have moved Sage before to new servers - what have you done?

Cheers

Your plan would work fine with older versions and was the generally accepted way to do it. Sage 2014 is different, unfortunately.
You do need the application installed now, and you cannot get away with only placing the files on a share. Sorry mate. Sage are right.

Probably not relevant, but i have not installed sage in 4 years, whenever i did the upgrade of the sofware i would make a backup of the data files first then install the new version of the software on tothe same server. sometimes i would have to tweak a few files afterwards i think the ini file or something and also reconfigure permissions aswell afterwards as sage seemed to somehow screw things up. make sure you back up first everything before attempting anything - but of course you probably already knew that !
