Issue/Introduction



We have DevTest running on one Server which will be decommissioned. 

 

Can we "reuse" the same Enterprise Dashboard and Registry databases for the new Server and proceed as follow: 

- Stop old DevTest services 

- Install DevTest on new server and configure with same name and same databases 

- Start DevTest on the new server

Environment

All supported DevTest releases and platforms.

Resolution

The answer is yes. 

 

But just to make sure the old server DevTest services do not get started after you move to the new server, since you will be using the same databases on the new server, uninstall DevTest on the old server after you have everything moved to the new server.
