  • HI,

    The SSP runs on every WFE, to move the CA run the two following PSConfig commands..

    psconfig.exe -cmd adminvs -unprovision
    psconfig.exe -cmd adminvs -provision -port 2007 -windowsauthprovider onlyusentlm 

    This will un-provision your current CA and provision a new one on PORT:2007 on the server you are running the command on.

  • Hi Ivan,

    thanks for your answer.

    I was able to migrate SSP and CA.During farm join , I used option All component ( complete ) and new server to host  CA.After successful server join ,i was able to see CA and SSP web app on both server IIS. After that ,simply I removed old server from farm.
