We are hoping to get some advice regarding an upgrade.
We are currently running EventSentry 2.92 build 30 on Windows 2003 Server. We are upgrading to the newest version on platform Windows Server 2012 R2. We have more than a handful of events in our current EventSentry configuration. We'd like to export that configuration and import it into the new install as outlined in this tutorial:http://www.eventsentry.com/support/tutorial/topic/upgrading-from-v292-to-v293/step/1
However, since we are *not* doing an upgrade install, but rather doing a totally new install on a totally new server, I have a question about the sequence of events, which I believe should go like this:
1) Export config on old EventSentry.
2) Install newest EventSentry on new server.
***3) Import config into the newest EventSentry on the new server.
***4) Run the configuration assistant on the new version, this will upgrade the DB's in the old config and other things like that.
My real concern is with steps 3 and 4. Is that the correct sequence? The DB's have to be upgraded on the old config, so we'll have to run the configuration assistant *after* we import the config, right? Or is there a better way to do this upgrade?
One option is to just re-create all of the events on the new install from scratch. This would be the preferred method if there is any chance of the export/import having issues.
Thanks for your time!
