How to migrate the IGEL UMS from to a new SQL Sever?


Hello everyone! I have a coworker that’s working on migrating our SQL databases to a new SQL server, is there documentation on how to best proceed with this? They’re wanting to know if this can be done during business hours, which I’m a little hesitant about without knowing if there are best practices from iGel. Any advice or resources you awesome folks can share I would very much appreciate! 🙂 Thank you!


Hello Jennifer, in general yes, there is no big downtime to expect but „general“ isn‘t really reliable😄

So, if possible, plan a short downtime period.

Well, yes, assuming we are speaking about MSSQL:

kb.igel.com/endpointmgmt-5.08/en/migrating-a-ums-database-from-embedded-db-to-microsoft-sql-server-910919.html

kb.igel.com/endpointmgmt-5.08/en/copying-database-contents-910922.html

Hope it helps a bit!


Oh yes, MSSQL, sorry for not specifying! 😄 This is exactly what they were looking for, thank you @member!
