I'm building a new, virtual EMC server to replace my old physical one.  I've got the machine up and running in VMWare with a trial license, but I haven't figured out how to get the configuration from the old server to the new.

I'm hoping I can do some sort of import/export, but it doesn't seem to be that easy.  The old server is Windows running EMC v 7.0.4.29.  The new server is Ubuntu running EMC v 8.0.4.54.

Hi Terren,

In the link below, please find the instructions for migrating from a version 7.x installation of XMC to a version 8.x version. If you have any questions, please let me know!

Thanks.  It wiped my user groups, but I got that sorted with this article:

The only problem I have now is that it did not import my Policy.  I think I can fumble my way through that, though.  I'll let you know.

Edit:  Yup.  Got it.  No problem on that front.

Another gotcha that usually happens, is the directory structure under Inventory Manager options, need to reset those to Linux defaults.  

Also this has happened to me before too: https://gtacknowledge.extremenetworks.com/articles/Solution/Syslog-was-not-showing-up-after-upgrade-...
