Moving from Email and Server Security to Server Security using PMS/PMC?

Hi there.

 

Is it possible to migrate servers from Email and Server Security (10.00) to Server Security (10.01) using PMS/PMC? These are considered different families by the PMS/PMC, so it is not possible to do a simple upgrade from ESS 10.00 to SS 10.01.

 

We have a handfull of servers that run ESS but should be running SS, and I don't want to go through the hassle of manually install SS on these servers. I know it can be done by logging in using RDP and install SS 10.01. This would uninstall ESS 10.00 in the process, but I don't have the admin password for the servers, so getting RDP access could be a pain in the *ss. If I could get the job done using PMS/PMC, it's just a matter of finding the right time and pushing the SS migration to the servers in question.

 

So... Can I do a policy based uninstall of ESS followed by a fresh install of SS, or do I cut all life lines between PMS/PMC and the servers when uninstalling ESS? Any other way of getting the job done without access to the server consoles?

 

Thanks in advance!

Dear Popeye,

 

Upgrading from ESS 10 to SS 10.01 is not possible because they are two different products. Upgrades can only be done for the same product to a higher version. However looks like the only option left for you is to uninstall ESS 10 and install SS 10.01 from the PMC itself since you do not have the admin password for the servers.

 

Please also take note when you are performing installation for SS from the PMC, the wizard will prompt for Admin access login which can be used to complete the installation.  

 

Please feel free to contact us again should you need further assistance.

 

Thanks.

Best Regards,
