Vault Migration Overview

UPDATED: September 7, 2017


These general steps will give you an idea what is involved when migrating from Vault 6 to Vault 7.  These steps are not necessarily applicable to earlier versions!

1) Install Vault 7.2 on a new server. I'd recomend installing both the Vault server and also Serviceweb2, which you can use for testing the new install

2) Copy INI files from the old server to the new server (check to make sure that you don't have paths or IP addresses in the INI files that could cause conflicts where two versions of Vault try to write to the same set of files!) including profiles.ini / database.ini / server.ini / e2serverd.ini / e2renderd.ini(s) / e2routerd.ini.

3) Copy the contents for the following folders on the old server to the new server:

a) server/index/

b) server/docdata/

c) server/pagedata

d) server/distrib/<resourcesetname>

e) server/distrib/default (only if you had configured the old server to write files there, otherwise you don't need to copy these files)

f) render/distrib/<resourcesetname> (for each render)

g) render/default (for each render, but only if you had configured the old server to write files there, otherwise you don't need to copy these files)

4) Start Vault services and test by trying to view files using a Vault client. If you are using custom clients / APIs you will also want to test those methods thoroughly as there could be some changes between 6.1 and 7.2.
