server + OS + db migration BO 4.1

Hi all,

I'm struggling with the most optimal scenario to do the following on an existing BO 4.1 SP6 system:

We want to move our existing system (Win Server 2008 R2 & CMC db = SQL Server 2012) to a new server, running on Windows server 2012, and at the same time use another database for the CMC (Sybase ASE).

So we want to do a server move AND an OS migration and a CMC database migration, without losing anything of course.

Should I consider this as a promotion?  I was thinking on installing a fresh BO 4.1 SP6 system (with sybase ASE) on Win server 2012, and with the PMT transport all BI content from the old server to the new one.

But is the PMT OS and DB agnostic?  And do I lose anything this way, infoobjects etc?

You can use PM to move your content. If your environment is too big, i would suggest to split the objects promotion in to multiple jobs and promote. Otherwise you will see timeout issues.

You can also use  command line PM to avoid timeout issues.
