Migrating OpManager from 32 bit version to 64 bit version

Migrating OpManager from 32 bit version to 64 bit version

OpManager migration from  32 bit Version  to 64 bit Version:

1)Stop OpManager service

2) Take a backup of OpManager database

Backup
---------
To take a backup of the data and configurations in OpManager:

Execute BackupDB.bat from OpManager Home/bin/backup directory.

*Once the backup is over, a directory "backup" is created  under OpManager Home directory and the backup file with .zip extension is placed.

The name of the backup file contains the date and time at which backup is taken.

Example:BackUp_March9_2010_03_09_34_8024.zip

(In addition to the above backup, we also recommend you to take the complete OpManager folder backup for any future use, if using MSSQL database make OpManager folder backup + SQL backup)

3.Uninstall 32 bit of OpManager  (Remove OpManager directory completely  after uninstall)

( Make sure you have copied the OpManager/backup folder on a different location before you uninstall the current  one as it contains the backup file which should be used for restoring the database after 64 bit install)

4)Download ManageEngine_OpManager_64bit.exe  with the same build number from the link below :

http://archives.manageengine.com/opmanager/

5)Run the above (64 bit) exe file to install OpManager

6)Start OpManager service and make  sure OpManager works fine

7)Stop OpManager service

8)Restore the OpManager database

Restore
----------
To restore the backed up data, copy the backup folder from the old install to the new OpManager install under the same directory (OpManager/backup)

(Create a new directory in the name of  "backup" if you do not have  one and then copy the backup file)

*Execute RestoreDB.bat from OpManager Home /bin/backup> directory with the backup file name as argument.

See example below:

\\OpManager\bin\backup>RestoreDB.bat  "C:\Program Files\ManageEngine\OpManager\bin\backup\BackUp_March9_2010_03_09_34_8024.zip"

During restoration, the existing tables are dropped, new tables are created, and the data is restored in all the tables.

(Note: OpManager backup and Restore will work with same OpManager version and same build number)

Applicable for OpManager 8 version  and above( build 8030 onwards)

Note: The database backup and Restore commands are different for  builds above 9450, refer the link below:
