I need to move BNA from one server to another server.

    A new server has been brought on board and BNA needs to be moved. My thought was to install the same version  on the new server as the current production version of BNA and then to copy the database and other files that constitute the heart of the BNA configuration. But I need some advise on what those files are. Any advise would be appreciated.

    I have not done this before, so take this with a grain of salt (IE: read the install guide for clarification)

     

    I would:

    1 - backup current BNA

    2 - install new BNA

    3 - shutdown current BNA

    4 - restore current BNA to new BNA.

     

    There used to be odd issues if two BNA devices were active and connected to the same switches.
