Migration guide

Follow the guidelines in this article to:

  • Move DataSecurity Plus from one server or drive to another.
  • or

  • Migrate DataSecurity Plus from 32-bit to 64-bit architecture.

Moving DataSecurity Plus from one server or drive to another.

  • Stop the DataSecurity Plus server(Start > Run > type services.msc > Stop ManageEngine DataSecurity Plus).
  • 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
  • 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.
  • 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.
