"Move" SQL Monitor installation (install application elsewhere inherit existing repository) question
- we would like to upgrade from 9.0.3 to 9.1.7
- we would like to install the SQL monitor application to another app server while keeping the history 

what is the simplest path on this? uninstall existing application on old server, install upgraded application on new server and connect to existing repository 

Thank you

    Thats it in a nutshell. It's quite an easy process, even easier if you're not moving the database. Take a look at https://redgatesupport.zendesk.com/knowledge/articles/360002485258/ and just ignore the database steps - and don't forget to deactivate your licence on the old install.

    In a nutshell though uninstall it from the old server, install on the new server and point it to the existing repository.

    Thank you.
    - the link does not open for me (just takes me to the 'How we can help you today' support screen). is there another link available ?
    - separately, is my understanding below proper  ?  3 'tiers' ( web UI, base monitor program, DB backend). If i want to keep DB back end in place and move everything else => uninstall and install UI + base monitor on another machine. otherwise, just adding a base monitor elsewhere does not move the UI, correct? 

    Thank you 
  • I'm not sure why that link isn't working, I'll ask the web team to look at that sorry.

    Other than that, yes there are 3 components: the webserver, the basemonitor and the database. They can all be on the same machine, on 3 different machines, or a combination of any of the two on anyone machine, with the third component on another.

    The webserver will be installed wherever you run the installer. During the installation you can then opt to install the basemonitor elsewhere.
