I was wondering if you guys could provide me any help related to migration.
What we need is the following: We have an environment with about 2500 computers, 5 relays, 1 Database. Our Server runs version 10.0.3.66 which is fairly old, as we were not using our environment due to a significant Cyber Attack a year ago, so we are rebuilding our entire infrastructure, patch management.
We were able to backup our entire BigFix Environment, but we would like to update our entire system. We will migrate BigFix for SQL 2019 as well as another operational system probably Windows Server 2016 or 2019. We’re running BigFix and all of its components in machines running Windows Server 2012 R2.
We will migrate the server to an environment using the same FQDN, only the Operational System will change.
What should we do?
The masthead is where the server knows how to communicate and propagate to clients, so we’re gonna need that.
We were also thinking of making a “clean” installation, that being… We would install server on the new machine of same FQDN and we would ignore the old database creating a new. Is it possible?
Database migration can be tricky, so I would like to know any advice on how to do that.
