Migration from XI R2 to Xi R3 and new server box


We are planning to migrate to a new server and on that new server, we will install BO XI R3. We have the following issues:

1. All our users have bookmarked the XI R2 address in their browser. How can we transparently forward them to the new server. Can we do it with DNS forwarding?

2. Even we can forward to the XI R3 login page, but how can we keep running our existing Xcelsius Dashboards. The Xcelsius dashboards get refreshed using live office and the live office model points to XI R2 reports. Do we need to update the model for each of the dashboards to point to the new server?

Please let us know if anyone has any suggestion/experience.

you can certainly install on Linux, then use Import Wizard to migrate content from XIr2 on windows
