Change of Platform

A change of platform is possible without any problems. No data or settings are lost in the process.

Steps for a Change of Platform

The following steps need to be executed to change from an initial platform to a target platform.

  • Install IP-Symcon on the target platform.
  • Terminate IPS service on the initial and the target platform.
  • Create backup on the initial platform.
  • Use Load backup to integrate the produced backup on the target platform.
  • Start the service on the target platform.

Watch out for the IP-Symcon versions of the initial and the target platform. If the versions are different, migrations need to be done eventually. For example, changing from version 3.4 to a higher version is impossible otherwise.

Any questions?
