  • Hi,

    I think if you take backup and restore the backup at new machine.And if you want the copy just install the new port and use the same database which you restore.

  • whole server backup? well the thing is, enviroments differ a lot, one has sql cluster + portal and sspr are on different servers, while other has sql server and all fim components on the same server.

    Bottom line, you can do almost all with powershell scripts

  • any new ideas? cant really postpone it further...

    so when i try to export server configuration it all goes until first agent. first one is sql agent. and it fails on sql agent for the reason specified above (acnhor attribute). so how do i get past that?
