    Two basic server setup questions

    SolarWinds Community Team


      I've been running EminentWare for over a year now, and it's been working perfectly. 

      We are in the midst of changing all of our servers, and have a couple questions about the setup of the EminentWare server.


      1) Is there a guide of how to transfer/convert the full system from one server to another?

      2) Can EminentWare and WSUS reside on the same server?

          Currently there is not a published guide/document regarding the migration of a Primary Application Server. Generally speaking, we recommend installing a new server from scratch, as the majority of information contained in the server is replicated from other sources. The exceptions would be scenarios with a notable number of EminentWare Computer Groups, Credential Rings, or User Profiles.

          Patch Manager and WSUS can reside on the same server; however, there are special considerations that you need to be aware of. The Deployment Guide discusses these considerations.
