Moving a SkySync Instance from one Server to Another

The following procedure must be completed with the assistance of our support staff.

In order to move the installation of SkySync to a different server, follow these steps:

(Default installation paths are assumed, otherwise navigate to the custom install directories you installed SkySync in.)

On Source Server:

1. Upgrade SkySync to the latest version.

2. Open services.msc and stop the SkySync service.

3. Open an administrative command prompt, and under the SkySync install path (default: C:\Program Files (x86)\SkySync) run the command:

migrate encrypt -n PLAIN

4. Copy the SQL CE Database file (default: C:\ProgramData\PortalArchitects\Data\skysync.db) into a location where it can be accessed by the destination server.

On Destination Server:

1. Install the latest version of SkySync.

2. Open services.msc and stop the SkySync service.

3. Copy the database from step 4 above into C:\ProgramData\PortalArchitects\Data on the destination server.

4. Open an administrative command prompt and under the SkySync install directory run the following:

migrate encrypt -o PLAIN -n DPAPI

5. Start the SkySync service.
