Depending on the PGP version that you run you can try something like this:

Arnold, You mean to say I can export the keys from old machine and put it in one folder and copy those into the new machine. I import the keys to the PGP tools in the new server right?

It wont get any impact to the exisiting machine right. Becoz currently the old machine is the live production server.  Please advise.

Thanks
Venkatesh.

Create a reliable backup. Make sure you always have dependable copies of your data so you can restore your entire system or individual files.

If you follow Video #3 (https://www.goanywhere.com/openpgp-studio/documentation) you will notice where your KeyRing (private and public keys are stored). This way you can migrate this directory to a new server as you see fit.
