Move AD Connector to another Server

Explorer | Level 3

Hi Dropboxer,

i like to move the AD Connetor Installation from a Win2012R2 Server to a Win2019 Server. Is it just stop the services on the old Server and install and configure the new one? Do you have any hints or best practices to do that?

Thanks in advance

Hello Walter,

thanks for your fast reply.

The linked document explains to prepare and install the ad connector. I like to move a proper installation to another Server. Is it possible copy/export any config files that contains the config? Do i need a new "OAuth 2 DfB Token" an so on.

Regards

Ah, thanks for clarifying this @HausE70!

In this case, I'd suggest taking a screenshot of the exact settings and your configurations on the Server you'd be dropping so you can then apply them anew on the new Server. 

As per the OAuth token, you could rerun the config script to get a new one. 

If you're still having issues with this, please let me know and I'll reach out via the email address that's associated with your Community's profile so we can work on this together.

Thanks again and happy Monday!
