Migration guide

With the guidelines mentioned below you can:

Migrating DataSecurity Plus from one server or drive to another:

  • Stop DataSecurity Plus by following the steps below:
    Start > All Programs > ManageEngine DataSecurity Plus > Stop DataSecurity Plus server.
    Or:
    Start > Run > services.msc > Stop ManageEngine DataSecurity Plus service.
  • Stop the DB.
    • Open Command Prompt as an administrator
    • Navigate to <installation dir>\ManageEngine\DataSecurity Plus\bin
    • Execute StopDB.bat
  • Remove the DataSecurity Plus service.
    • Open Command Prompt as an administrator
    • Navigate to <installation dir>\ManageEngine\DataSecurity Plus\bin
    • Execute the command wrapper.exe -r ..\conf\wrapper.conf
  • Remove the ManageEngine DataSecurity Plus - DataEngine XNode:
    • Open the Command Prompt as an administrator
    • Navigate to <installation dir>\ManageEngine\DataSecurity Plus\apps\dataengine-xnode\bin
    • Execute the command: dataengine-xnode.bat -r
    • Note: This step is required only for build numbers 6000 and above.
  • Copy the entire DataSecurity Plus folder to the new server or drive.
  • Ensure both folder sizes are the same.
  • Open Command Prompt with administrative privileges. Navigate to \ManageEngine\DataSecurity Plus\bin and execute InstallNTService.bat.
  • Create the same archive folder location in the newly installed server. Then, copy all archive files present in the old server location and paste them to the new server location. Or, If you wish to move the installation from one drive to another, keep the archive files at the same location.
  • If you want to start the product as a service, go to:
    Services.msc > ManageEngine DataSecurity Plus Service. Right click on Properties, click Log on select This Account and provide the appropriate credentials.

Permissions needed on the target folder while moving the installation folder

Ensure that the following permissions are assigned to the target folder while changing the installation location:

  • To another drive or another folder (except Program Files and Program Files(x86)).
  • By default, the required permissions (Read & execute and Write) will be pre-set by Windows. Ensure that the permissions assigned for Authenticated Users are not removed, as DataSecurity Plus can't operate without these permissions.

  • To Program Files or the Program Files(x86) folder:
  • As the permissions needed for Authenticated Users will not be pre-set, we'll have to assign them explicitly. Provide Authenticated Users with Modify and Read & execute permissions on the data folder (inside the pgsql folder). Another option is to run the initpgsql.bat file inside \ManageEngine\DataSecurity Plus\bin.

Migrating DataSecurity Plus from 32-bit to 64-bit architecture

  • Check the product build number. If it's not the latest build, upgrade your 32-bit version of DataSecurity Plus to the latest build using the appropriate service pack from the below link.
  • https://www.manageengine.com/data-security/service-pack.html
  • Install the latest 64-bit version of DataSecurity Plus in a different computer. Do not start the product.
  • Stop the 32-bit installation.
    Start > All Programs > ManageEngine DataSecurity Plus > Stop DataSecurity Plus server.
    Or:
    Start > Run > services.msc > Stop ManageEngine DataSecurity Plus service.
  • Rename the below folders in the 32-bit installation folder:
    • lib
    • jre
    • bin
  • Now copy the following folders from the 64-bit build installation folder and save it in the 32-bit installation folder.
    • lib
    • jre
    • bin
  • Go to the \ManageEngine\DataSecurity Plus\conf folder in the 32-bit installation.
  • Open product.confusing Wordpad.
  • Change product.processor_architecture to 64.
  • Copy the wrapper.conf file from the location \ManageEngine\DataSecurity Plus\conf\ in the 64-bit installation, and replace it in the 32-bit installation.
  • Copy the wrapper.conf file from the location \ManageEngine\DataSecurity Plus\apps\dataengine-xnode\conf\ in the 64-bit installation, and replace it with the 32-bit installation.
  • Start the 32-bit installation and reapply the license file.

Steps to migrate DataSecurity Plus to a new server and database restoration

Steps to move DataSecurity Plus and restore a database from one server to another:

Prerequisites:

  • Do not uninstall DataSecurity Plus from the current server until the installation on the new server is successful.
  • Upgrade to the latest version of DataSecurity Plus.
    • To identify the current version, click on the License tab located in the top-right corner.
    • Download the latest version of DataSecurity Plus here.

Steps for DataSecurity Plus migration

  • Stop DataSecurity Plus by following the steps below: Start > All Programs > ManageEngine DataSecurity Plus > Stop DataSecurity Plus server.
    Or:
    Start > Run > services.msc > Stop 'ManageEngine DataSecurity Plus service.
  • Back up DataSecurity Plus:
    • Navigate to <Installation Directory>\DataSecurity Plus\bin.
      Or:
      Open the Command Prompt as an administrator.
    • Run the backupDB.bat file to back up the database of your current installation.
      Example: OfflineBackup_20161129235853.ezip
  • Note: The default folder location is C:\Program Files (x86)\ManageEngine\DataSecurity Plus\Backup).
  • Download and install DataSecurity Plus on the new server.
  • Start the product and verify that the latest version is installed. Stop the product in the new location so the product populates the necessary tables in the database.
  • Copy the compressed database backup file created in the old server to the new server at <installation directory> \DataSecurity Plus\bin.
  • In the new server, Open the Command Prompt (choose Run as Administrator) and navigate to <Installation Directory>\DataSecurity Plus\bin.
    Execute the restoreDB.bat file from the Command Prompt using the compressed database file. Example: restoreDB.bat OfflineBackup_20161129235853.ezip -p Backup@123$.
  • Note: The default password for the compressed file is Backup@123. Change the password as per your preference. To reset the password: Right-click the file > Properties > General > Advanced and check the box next to Encrypt contents to secure data. Then click OK.
  • Create the same archive folder location in the newly installed server. Then, copy all archive files present in old server location and paste them to the newly installed server location (default archive location: <Installation Directory>\DataSecurity Plus\bin\Backup).
  • Copy and replace \DataSecurity Plus\apps\ (Example: C:\Program Files (x86)\ManageEngine\DataSecurity Plus\apps) from the old server to the new server.
  • Copy and replace \DataSecurity Plus\conf\DataEngine (Example: C:\Program Files (x86)\ManageEngine\DataSecurity Plus\conf\DataEngine) from the old server to the new server.
  • Ensure you apply the DataSecurity Plus license to the console installed in the new server to avoid start-up issues. Apply the original license file sent to your email from licensing@manageengine.com.
  • Start DataSecurity Plus as an application: Start > All Programs > ManageEngine DataSecurity Plus > Start DataSecurity Plus server.
    or
    Start DataSecurity Plus as a service: Start → Run → services.msc → Start ManageEngine DataSecurity Plus service.

Best practice: Run DataSecurity Plus as a service to keep it running even if the current user logs off the system.

Note: For product versions 5010 and older, the name of the folder, service, or program is FileAudit Plus.
