Procedure to move EventLog Analyzer installation to another server (for PostgreSQL database users)

Follow the steps given below to retain the same configuration and data on the new server.

Steps to move EventLog Analyzer to a different server:

  1. Stop the EventLog Analyzer server/service.

  2. Check the task manager for the processes 'java.exe', 'postgres.exe' and 'SysEvtCol.exe' and kill the process if any of these processes are running.

  3. Copy the following complete folders (including the files and sub-folders) to another drive or to a mapped network drive as a precautionery measure. This will help us to restore to the settings and data in case of any issue with the new machine.

 

Ensure that the EventLog Analyzer installation in the previous is migrated to the latest version, before carrying out the change of server operation. EventLog Analyzer versions should be same in both servers for seamless change over operation.

                 4. Download and install the latest build of EventLog Analyzer from the following link:

                     https://www.manageengine.com/products/eventlog/download.html

                 5. Once you install the application in the new machine, make sure that you do not start the application or shutdown the EventLog                                  Analyzer if started.

                 6. Rename the folder <EventLog Analyzer Home>pgsqldata as 'data_ori'.

                 7. Copy the pgsql folder (which is located under <EventLog Analyzer Home>) from the old machine to the new system in the same                                location.

                 8. Copy the Archive folder (which is located under <EventLog Analyzer Home>serverdefault) from the old machine to the new system in                        the same location.

                 9. Copy the Indexes folder (which is located under <EventLog Analyzer Home>serverdefault) from the old machine to the new system in                      the same location.

                 10. Copy the ela_key.key file (which is located under <EventLog Analyzer Home>conf) from the old machine to the new system in                                the same location.

                11. Copy the backup_key.conf file (which is located under <EventLog Analyzer Home>server/conf) from the old machine to the new                            system in the same location.

Note: Ensure that the EventLog Analyzer is not running on both the system while performing this operation.

                 12. Restart the EventLog Analyzer on the new machine and check whether the data and the configurations are intact.

Procedure to move EventLog Analyzer Server installation to another server (for MSSQL database users)
