Are there any documents with instructions on how to migrate PA from one
server to another?


Thanks,

Hi Keith,

Here are the steps we recommend you take to migrate PA to another server:

1. Shut down your Pylon Anywhere and Adaptive Server Anywhere services on
your old server. Copy C:\Program Files\Sybase\Pylon Anywhere\DB\synchdb.db
to a network drive. Optionally, also copy C:\Program Files\Sybase\Pylon
Anywhere\PIM\SharedFileSystem (see step 5).

2. Ideally, the new machine should have the same name, DNS and IP address as
the old one, and have access to the same network drives. In this case, you
will need to shut down the old machine before starting the new one.

3. Install Pylon Anywhere on the new machine.

4. Shut down the Pylon Anywhere and Adaptive Server Anywhere services on the
new machine. Delete C:\Program Files\Sybase\Pylon Anywhere\DB\synchdb.db and
synchdb.log. Copy the production database to this directory. You won't need
the log file.

5. If you wish to preserve the current state of synchronization, copy the
production SharedFileSystem to C:\Program Files\Sybase\Pylon Anywhere\PIM.
This is important if you have a large number of users, and don't want them
all doing a full refresh when they next sync. If you have a small number of
users, it is probably better not to restore the SharedFileSystem.

6. Restart the ASA and Pylon Anywhere services. If you followed step 2, it
should start without a problem. If the machine name or IP address is
different, you will need to run the install again, to pick up the new
values. You will also need to adjust the values in the Server Names,
Directories and Secure Gateway tabs of the Pylon Anywhere Properties.

7. If you did not restore the SharedFileSystem, you will need to browse to
http://<servername>/admin/diag/pimsettings.jsp, click Reset All Accounts,
then press Reset All Users.


Take care,
