How to migrate the ERPro database and program files to a new server?

  1. Backup the databases dbSystem and db[Application] from the old server.
  2. Backup the folder where ERPro located on the old server (i.e. the shared folder with sub-folders).
  3. Install Microsoft SQL server 2005/2008 or 2012 on the new server.
  4. Restore dbSystem and db[Application] on the new server, configure proper SQL server user to access these databases (i.e. the sa password).
  5. Restore the ERPro folder on the new server and share the folder over among the system users.
  6. On each of the client's machine, locate the newly shared ERPro folder and replace the old link with a new link pointing to ERPRO.exe (i.e. create shortcut).
  7. Execute new ERPRO.exe, and enter the server/login information as requested.
