SBO: Migrating Business One to a new server

Does anybody here has experience in migrating an existing sbo installation to a new server(hardware)?

We're currently concerned with the following topics:

MSSQL is not able to export the sbo-commons database. Therefore we have installed a new the sbo-server and copied the existing firm-database.

Now there is a new sbo-common, but of course there are several entries in the old sbo-common missing now.

There may be some other pitfalls we haven't noticed so far.

Perhaps somebody has done this before.

    You will find a webex session (and Slides) on this very topic under the service marketplace - "Advanced installation issues" Alias is RKT-SMB.

    When you stop the sql server service or if you detach the database through the enterprise manager, you can easily copy the files you want and attach them on the other server. I recommend doing a backup first though (shrinks the log file).

      Hello,

      I guess the easiest way to get around these problems is to install SBO on the new server, create a new (empty) company database and restore the backup of the former company database into the newly created.

      This works.
