Better to Copy Existing and Upgrade or Build the Server from Scratch and Import the Project?

0 Kudos

We were acquired by a larger company and now need to point all our MII interfaces from one ECC system to a different one. In doing so we need to stand up a Development Server. We also need to upgrade our MII version. Are we better off cloning our existing Server and then Upgrading? Or would we be better off building a new server from scratch at the higher version and then exporting and importing the Project?

Or does it matter much one way or the other?

Cheers, Mike

Hi Mike,

I will suggest new servers from scratch with higher versions and then importing the project.

This will help with the following:

- Avoid any issues in hardware upgrade

- Possible new version of MII and related libraries

- You can build a parallel production system to verify the connectivity in advance.

It will need additional testing and setup but I think it will be worth in long run.

Thank you.
