  • 1.  Migrating CMS to AWS

    Posted 07-08-2019 04:28 AM

    HI All

    I have been tasked with moving our CMS solution from our datacentre to AWS.  I have seen a few sugggestions around restoring the current DB and selecting that during build then using the migrate tool to get all packages across.  Another option discussed was to set up a hierarchy and once we have everything synched to the new NS and package servers to remove the hierarchy.

    A few questions for a bit of advice

    Has anyone moved to AWS from in house, and if so what method did you use?

    Can the Symantec ITSM AWS AMI be configured to use an existing DB or is it a default configuration on startup?

    Any thoughts on the migration tool, is it reliable?

    I know this is not how hierarchy is designed to work but would there be any problems with using this method? 

    We have a pretty small estate under 5000 devices but also a small IT team so we need to get this right 

    Any advice would be appreciated, Thanks in advance
