I need to migrate an EPM system with HFM and Financial Reporting from the current machines to another ones.
we could do it with a new installation, configuration and after that using the Copy utility to migrate the applications, but with that we will loose many time, so we think that we could clone the machines and after that we changed the names of all machines (distributed enviroment) and including the database (sqlserver).
What are the steps for doing?
Thanks in advance
You can't just clone the machines/databases as there is configuration settings that are dependent on the environment they have been installed on, it not such an easy task to update all the configuration information,
are you looking for a DR solution as there are different options available but I would recommend talking to a consultant in more detail about them.
