Migrating Crystal Reports Server 2011 to Crystal Reports Server 2013

Hi,

I'm fairly new to Crystal Reports, but I've been tasked with migrating our existing Crystal Reports Server 2011 Version 14.0.2.364 to a new server which will run the latest release of Crystal Reports Server 2013.

Server A:

Windows Server 2008 R2

Crystal Reports 2011

Server B:

Windows Server 2012 R2

Crystal Reports 2013

I'd like to know what steps I should take in completing this task successfully. I need to migrate over everything to the new server and was wondering what the best practice for doing this would be.

Help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi Alan,

    You have to use promotion management to transfer the content from cR2011 to cR 2013.

    PM has some limitation per job , so you have to create multiple jobs if you want to migrate all the contents.

    There is an alternative is LCM_CLI.

    Use the link-

    • Actually, there is an unsupported flag you can add to the UMT command line to get it to work between CRS 2011 and CRS 2013. Edit the shortcut to the UMT and add the following to the end of the command line:

      -internal_use_only_noversioncheck

      This will make it much easier to migrate than using Promotion Management. I have successfully used this with several of my clients, so I know it works.

    You will need to use a tool called Upgrade Management Tool.

    You can find all needed information about it here: http://service.sap.com/~sapidb/012002523100008802082015E/sbo41sp6_bip_upgrade_en.pdf
