  • Moving RIS to another server

    Hi all

    I need to copy all our RIS images to another server which i intend to install RIS on. Are there any pit falls on doing this? I've searched google and MS Support but there doesn't appear to be much.

    Many thanks

    Re: Moving RIS to another server

    We tried this in our organisation and ran into some errors where the images failed to work.

    I think i tracked this down to the SCS folder storing certain files that are common across the images. Easy you might say just backup and restore the folders, this is where the problems started. The SCS hidden folder cannot be restored via backup. We tried a million times and were unable to do it successfully. I think it has a lot to do with permissions.

    We eventually re-created the images on the server, which took ages.
