How to migrate Daminion Server from one computer (PC1) to a new computer (PC2)


Recommended Posts

Follow the next steps:

 

1. Launch the Daminion Server Admin panel on PC1

2. Go to the main menu, Administration > Catalogs... and backup all your catalogs

3. Install Daminion Server on PC2

4. Launch the Daminion Server Admin panel on PC2

 

Now we need to move all catalogs from Daminion Server on PC1 to Daminion Server on PC2. Repeat the below steps for all catalogs on PC1:

 

5. Create a new catalog on PC2

6. Copy the catalog name from the first catalog on PC1

7. Adjust "Folder to Store Uploaded Files" and "Folder to Store thumbnails" paths or copy them from the first catalog on PC1 (check carefully user names)

8. Copy files from "Folder to Store Uploaded Files" folder on your PC1 to the "Folder to Store Uploaded Files" folder on your PC2

9. Copy files from "Folder to Store thumbnails" folder on your PC1 to the "Folder to Store thumbnails" folder on your PC2

10. Right click on a newly created catalog on PC1 and run "Restore..." command from the context menu. Specify a catalog backup that you did in the step 2. You also need to specify the _daminion##.backup file where information about Daminion users are stored, but you can do this only when restoring the first catalog only.

11. Repeat 5-10 steps for all catalogs on your PC1

12. Add a new Daminion Server address on your Daminion Clients. You can omit this step if a new PC2 name is the same as your PC1 name or has the same IP address (if you for example just upgraded the server).
