    Migrating NPM + NCM to a New Server and Subnet



      We use NPM and NCM on one server where we have Syslog, SNMP Traps, and Polling Engine, Website, etc services running from.

      We are migrating to a new network.

      We are migrating to new servers on this new network.

      The SQL server for NPM / NCM is running on a separate server (already been migrated).

      -Virtually every device in the enterprise points to the old NPM server for either SNMP Trap, Syslog, or both.  It will take some time to update all of these devices.-

      Anything I am missing?  Like Universal Device Pollers?



      Can I simply download the latest NPM and install it on the new network and new server, enabling Polling Engine, SNMP Traps, Syslog without encountering a license issue?

      Assuming I will have some sort of license issue running a second sever during this lengthy migration process of updating all devices in the enterprise, what is a recommended solution to help me get through this?

      Will installing NPM and NCM on the new server pick up the already monitored / backed up devices since it will point to the same DB server?


      I think the critical license pieces are the Polling Engine..   Perhaps running syslog and trap logger does not check or need a license so therefore, I may not have a problem migrating, simply leave Syslog and Trap logger running on old server, while moving the polling engine to the new network and server?
