Migrating to New Domain

Recommended Posts

We are planning a migration to a new domain and want to make sure we have everything planned for migrating Passwordstate.

 

The key points

Passwordstate is currently using manual AD auth

Users groups are based on AD groups

We don't currently implement password resets

New hosts are identified by Passwordstate using a proxy account in the domain

A trust exists between domains

User accounts will NOT be migrated, new users exist for all users and desktop profiles will be copied over.

We will be migrating desktops first and then servers once all desktops are finished. We can migrated services before a server is migrated though where possible.

 

What is the best method of migrating and is there anything that could cause issues?

 

Thanks

Hello afrench,

 

Before the migration, we would recommending first upgrading to version 8 - we have some features in V8 which makes it easier to clone permissions. To upgrade, you can follow anyone of the methods described in this document - https://www.clickstudios.com.au/downloads/version8/Upgrade_Instructions.pdf

 

Once done, can you contact us via our support page here https://www.clickstudios.com.au/support.aspx and we can provide some instructions for the migration.

Thanks very much.

Regards

We are limited with our upgrade at the moment as we are still running SQL server 2008R2. I have requested that this is upgraded to a new version but we are budget limited. The decision has been made to stay at v7 of PasswordState for now and not install SQL Express to enable an upgrade.

Hello,


Sure, we understand. You can still do the migration in V7, but it's just a little more work - as you have to clone permissions one user account at a time, instead of being able to to a bulk clone of permissions.

If you can contact us via our support page, we can email you the migration document.
