Change Servers

The database file is stored on a shared folder on the sever and you want to move it to a different server. These are the steps for doing this.

  1. Close all installations of HICSOAP.
  2. Open one installation and backup the database. MAIN MENU -> DATABASE -> BACKUP. You won't use the backup. This is just a precaution.
  3. Then move the database from the old to the new server. MAIN MENU -> MOVE
  4. Open and close that same installation and verify that the database is in the new, correct location.
  5. Open any other installations. They will complain about not being able to find the database but they will give you the opportunity to choose a new database. Choose the database in the new location.
  6. Please verify that all installations are opening the same exact file at the same exact location.
