I am currently running my Axigen installation on a Windows Server that is going to be decommissioned in several months. I plan to replace the server with a Debian 10 instance and would therefore like to migrate Axigen from Windows to Linux.
Based on a thread elsewhere that suggests it is possible to migrate a Linux installation to a new installation of Linux by simply copying the contents of some main directories, I am optimistic a Windows-to-Linux migration is possible, albeit with some additional work.
All of my work can be done with the Axigen servers offline, so there is no challenge of migrating a running server.
My plan is:
- Install Axigen on the Linux server.
- Stop Axigen on both servers.
- Copy several key directories from Windows to Linux. It looks like I need to copy the “domains”, “filters”, “run”, and “serverData” directories.
- It looks like the axigen.cfg file has several Windows paths inside of it, so I will need to search and replace those to change them to Linux paths.
- Restart Axigen on the Linux server and see how it works.
Am I missing anything? Is this a migration anyone has experience with?
