Need Help On Setting Up Disaster Recovery For Crystal Reports BOE 3.1


Version Of Crystal Report: BOE 3.1 ( Product: 12.1.0)

Operating System : Windows

Objective: Create a Disaster Recovery System for Crystal Reports

Steps Taken :

1) Installed Same version of Crystal reports on the DR server

2) Copied the File store from the production server to the Dr server

3) From the production MYSQL database exported the BOE12 database using MYSQLDUMP

4) Imported the DUMP file form production to the DR MYSQL database.


The DR Crystal application comes up fine. The issue is it is internally using the production set-up because it is pointing to the production server host name settings.

Also The production setup is installed on C: drive and Dr setup is installed on D Drive. So the file store's are in different locations. Need help in re configuring them also.

We need help with changing this configuration from production to DR.
