If I do a server migration will I have to re-register my PerfectMail server?
I am currently planning a server migration. When I perform the migration will I need to re-register my PerfectMail server? Will my migrated server be functional?
In most instances your PerfectMail server will be fully functional after a server migration, with no impact to production or functionality. However you will need to register a newly created PerfectMail server.
There are two types of server migrations that are generally be performed with PerfectMail servers:
1) Migration of data to a newly installed PerfectMail server. When you create a new PerfectMail anti-spam server instance, that instance comes with a fully functional 60 day license. This will let you set up your new environment and perform your migration at your leisure. When you are ready to put the new server into production let us know and we will assign your license to the new server.
2) Migration of a virtual server within the virtualization host server or across host servers. In most cases the virtual server will be migrated intact with the virtual hardware components being maintained. Your existing PerfectMail anti-spam license will remain functional. In fact this sort of server migration will be seamless to your PerfectMail server.
In any case, if you have any issues, let us know. We will be happy to assist you.
