Move SG Database and Management Center to new Server


we want to move our SafeGuard Enterprise 8.0 Server to a new machine. On the present machine is the Database and the Management Center

Is there anywhere a whitepaper, the search wasnt very helpful.

We would prefer not to use the old server name, but it would be possible to redirect the DNS-Name to the New one. Would this be enough, or would it cause any trouble?

Thank you




  • Hi  

    We have Knowledgebase article to migrate the database from one server to another and what steps need to be followed to complete that migration.

    Unfortunately, that article is not public-facing because those steps need to be followed under the guidance of Sophos Technical Support engineer.

    So, I would request you to open a support case here to get help on the migration of the database.

    Hi Jasmin, 

    ok, but some basic information would be fine in public, at least that you should contact the support :-)

    I am already finished with moving to the new server.

    Best regards
