Thanks Johan,

However my understanding is that dataforward uses double the number of licenses. Hence I need to have as many free licenses as the devices currently on the system to use the dataforward option.

Pl. confirm if my understanding is correct.

You can use DataForward during migration. Please report the IP of your old and new server to support @ gpsgate.com before migration starts.

Regards,
Johan

Heads up!

-- Update --
The latest release of the GpsGate Server install wizard (gpsgateserver.exe) should now be able to handle blocked files.
Please report to us if you still have problems!
-------------------------------------------------------------------

A problem that can occur when you copy files to your new server is that the files get marked as "blocked" due to new security policies in Windows.
If you right-click->Properties a file that is blocked it says, at the bottom: "This file came from another computer and might be blocked to help protect this computer".

* Blocked files cause GpsGate migrate install to fail in a confusing way! *

Since it's not practical to manually unblock each file you can instead follow one of these steps:

method #1
Copy files by zipping them with a 3rd party zip program like http://www.7-zip.org or WinRAR, that doesn't include this flag (both at source and destination)

method #2
Using Windows built in zip. After copying the zip to the destination, make sure the zip itself is unblocked, then unzip.

method #3
Use the Streams tool, https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sys ... 97440.aspx
run: "streams -s -d C:\GpsGateInstall" after copying,


You can also use PowerShell scripts and probably also avoid this by using other copying programs, ftp etc. Fill in your tips and feedback if you experience this!

Hello:

I made the migration of my GpsGate Server installation to a new hardware. The problem is that under the folder C:\GpsGateServer I can’t find the folder “Opt” only I made the backup the following folders:
"Deploy"
"Franson NMEA Service"
"IIS"
Then I made all the process that is described in the forum. For this new server, I used a different IP than the old server because I wanted to know if the new server was OK. When I started the server I tried to erase an account and I got the following error:

ERROR [HY000] [MySQL][OBDC 5.1 Driver]
[mysqld-5.5.20]TRGGER command denied to user
‘root’@’%’ for table ‘device’


Note: While I was doing all this process the old server was still working.
The question is:
Why Do I have this error?
Do I have to turn off the old server?
I don’t turn off the old server because I don’t know if the new server work OK.

The migration process aborted due to the following error "could not find a part of the path opt 'C:\GpsGateInstall\GpsGateServer\opt'.
On my server I have only
"Deploy"
"Franson NMEA Service"
"IIS"

What to do with this new OPT folder?

Please see attached.
