Move Project from one Server to another

Post by thomas »

Hi,

what would be the workflow to move a project to another server (both registered in NIM).
We copied the folder structure to the new server, and basically we just need to change the drive Letters in the database from N: (old server) to Z: now.
Is there a convenient way to do that?

cheers,
Thomas

Hi Thomas,

If both servers are added as entries in NIM, you would want to add the new server to the job so the job has both servers attached. This will create the folder structure on the 2nd server for you.

For any files that have moved locations you'll want to update the path as well as the server setting for the file. There is not a way to bulk change a portion of the paths of files and what server they live on in the UI. However this is something you could do through the API using the findFiles and updateFiles queries.

Cheers,
Andrew
