Move SM to new server
Question asked by Lennart Eliasson - 3/18/2020 at 8:37 AM
We are planning to move SM 15.7 on Win2k8 to a new server. And at the same time upgrade to SM16. How to do this best and which Windows server would you suggest?

Hello Lennart,

It would be best to install SmarterMail 15.7 on your new server, migrate everything over, then upgrade on the new server once you've confirmed everything is working as it should.  You can follow the steps in our kb articles Migrate SmarterMail to a Different Server and Major Upgrade of SmarterMail.

As for the server, 16.x and newer requires, at minimum, a Windows 2012 R2 64-bit or higher.  You can read the full system requirements in our online help here: SmarterMail System Requirements.  

Let us know if you have any other questions.
