Migrating BOXI 3.1 SP7

We are migrating BOXI 3.1 SP7 to a new server. Please note that we are not upgrading. Is it possible to move report in personal folders along with report schedules?

    Why don't you take backup CMS DB and point the CMS DB to new server? It is much faster than promoting all the content to other server.

    Follow below steps.

    As you are on an unsupported version, it would make a lot more sense to upgrade to BI 4.2 SP3, SP4 is you do not use Lumira or Design Studio.

    Anyhow, the easiest way to achieve what you want, is to install XI 3.1 SP7 on the new server and then use the Import Wizard (RIP Import Wizard, we really miss you!) to migrate all of your content. Doing it any other way will just cause you a lot of headaches with hostname changes etc.
