Migrating from between Servers

Wed Jan 13, 2010 2:55 am

Morning,

I've just completed the upgrade of our main exchange server ..... I've got MWES all working and it's checking email...

It there a quick way to export / import the while & backlists from the old server to the new server ??

Can't believe we didn't see your post tucked away down the bottom - sincere apologies for that.
They use different databases, so not really. The only real way is to copy & paste to notepad then import them (we'll have an import feature soon) directly in to the db like you would here http://www.firetrust.com/en/products/ma ... d-password

Interesting answer. And because I wasn't exactly clear I got a different answer.

Still a valid question as I have another customer to upgrade.

We have upgrading only the hardware. My customer is currently running Exchange 2003 SP 2 with mailwasher 2.74, but on old hardware. I'm building a new server which is going to be Exchange 2003 SP2 again with Mailwasher 2.74 (yes I've spotted the upgrade to 2.75 so I'd like to do that after the hardware change). Can I just copy the database to the new server (it look like a SQLite Database)

Hi there,

Yes, you can just copy across the mwes.db file to the new server and it will retain all the data for you.

2.7.4 and 2.7.5 are about 4 years old. We're currently at 2.8.1.4 so I'd suggest upgrading to that. You can just copy the database to the new server, it's an SQLite database.

I'm not sure what you mean.
