Migrating OpenLM to a new Server – AN4034

Users require a procedure to migrate OpenLM to a new computer, and maintain the license usage information that has been gathered during a long period of time. This migration may be accompanied with an OpenLM release version migration (e.g. from  2.X.X.X to 3.X.X.X), or not. This article provides the required procedure for both cases.

Migrating between servers, maintaining OpenLM version 3.X.X.X

1. Extract the hostname and MAC address for the new OpenLM Server machine. Send this information to support@OpenLM.com. OpenLM will provide a license file for the new machine.

2. Stop the OpenLM server service on the old server.

3. Save a backup of the OpenLM server database to a safe place. Embedded Firebird databases are normally located at:

C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenLM\OpenLM Server\db

For other types of external databases, please consult your system administrator.

4. Download and install the latest OpenLM server version 3 from the OpenLM site on the new server. This will create a new empty database in the

C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenLM\OpenLM Server\db directory.

5. Finalize the installation process, and stop the OpenLM service on the new server.

6a. When using an embedded Firebird Database, copy the OpenLM database from the old server, and replace the empty database in the new server.

6b. For External database types, open the Windows’ Start → “All Programs” → OpenLM → Server → “OpenLM Database Configuration”, and simply point to the OpenLM database location.

7. Copy the license file to the C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenLM\OpenLM Server\License directory, and restart the OpenLM server service on the new server.

Now you’re done with the OpenLM server migration, and need to configure OpenLM peripherals to point to the new OpenLM server machine.

8. OpenLM Broker: Upgrade the OpenLM Brokers installed on the License server machines. Configure the brokers to point to the new OpenLM server machine according to the OpenLM Broker quick installation guide.

9. Update the OpenLM Agent version. You will need the Agents to point to the new OpenLM Server, so select the ‘SERVER NAME’ parameter accordingly.
