We have a few servers offering services like mail, specifically we had a 2008R2 server with smartermail on it, we have subsequently installed a 2016 server, reinstalled smartermail and moved the users across to this server, now specifically in solidcp all the services, etc are related to service ids, and server ids, etc. so what I have done is I have just left the original server info in the solidcp system, as all the ips and everything is 100% identical other than the operating system being 20016 and not 2008.. Will this cause issue or will this be ok..
My assuption is because all the stuff is effectively the same there should be no impact.
There can be quite a difference in modules but it really depends on the modules you use (so it’s hard to say what kind of impact it would have).
It is however easily adjustable by checking the Providers table, look up the providerID for for example Windows 2016, then go to the Services table and replace ur existing ProviderID for you service with the new value.
then just open up the service settings make sure all is set right, and save.
basically the only difference is the operating system, the new servers name, ips, software, ie mail server, dns, is 100% identical. the only difference is its a new server running on windows 2016 OS
in actual fact we have 3 servers we want to replace, ie a 2008R2 server running mssql. and ano0ther server also running smartermail, so basically it would be an operating system update..
It would still be the same process by changing the provider ID’s at this time.
There have been some new code that allows you to change it in the settings pages however these aren’t part of stable release and are so far only developped for certain services.
