Can a Digital Sentry database backup be imported from an alternate Digital Sentry server?

Issue

  • Can a DSSRV Database backup be imported to another DSSRV?
  • I want to transfer all configurations from a existing digital sentry server to a new server.

Cause

New Digital Sentry configuration using a database backup from a different Digital Sentry server.

Resolution

Due to licensing restrictions to a system's product ID number, a Digital Sentry backup transfer between servers is not supported.
