BO recovery on different machine


we try to restore BO to a new host (different IP and hostname). We have a CMS database backup and a FRS file share backup from the old host.

Our recovery steps are:

1) Installing BO with a new empty CMS database

2) Creating new SIA with different port (6401) an pointing it to the restored CMS database

3) Pointing the FRS in the new SIA to the restored FileStore directory

The new SIA starts successfully. When we try to log in to the new SIA via CCM we retrieve an error saying that a connection to the the old hostname is not possible.

We changed CMS hostname and cluster name in properties of the SIA from old to new value, but that did not help.

Did we choose the correct recovery steps and are there any configuration changes we kept not in mind?

    Please check this KBA for further help in restoring BOE:

    Did you delete the restored services from the previous BOE system?

    Thanks & Regards,

      Dear Kai,

      To restore correctly the BOE environment into another server, you just need to do this:

      - Install the BOE product in the new server (you an use different hostname & diffferet path).

      - Restore the CMS database from the backup or use the Copy option to copy the CMS DB from the source environment.

      - Restore the FRS folder.

      - Create a new SIA in the destination environment because the old sia won't be working.

      - Later on if the server is working fine, you can delete the old SIA from the destination server and change the cluster name.

      I hope this help.

      Thanks & Regards,
