Step 1 – Install
Deploy the All-In-One OVA (AIO) in your ESXI, but DO NOT start the services on the Management Console or activate your license at this time.
NOTE: View the system requirements here: http://liveaction.com/specifications/
Launch the Client and connect to your existing Server, and go to File > Export Devices
On your existing Server Management Console, go to Manage > Export Configurations, deactivate the license, and shutdown the services by going to Manage > Shutdown Services.
Navigate to the LiveAction Server Data directory
You can locate you Data directory by opening the Server Management Console. Go to the Properties tab and search for app.datadir.
In this example, we will navigate to C:\LiveAction Server Data\5.3\nodes\Local\data. This is where your historical data is stored. Make sure both the servers (AIO and the Windows Installer) are shut down during the transfer of files.
The following folders below will need to be copied over to the AIO OVA:
To copy the files over to the AIO OVA, you can use an FTP client such as WinSCP or FileZilla. This may take up to a few hours to complete, so I suggest that you do this after business hours and let it transfer overnight.
admin@livenx:~$ cd /data/livenx-server/data/nodes/Local NOTE: Once the transfer is complete, if you decide to assign the same IP address on the AIO OVA, make sure
On the All-In-One OVA, click Manage >Start services.
Select the option to activate cloud licensing.
You need to use the new license. By this time, you should have received an email from support regarding the cloud license. With the information from the email, please proceed to Step 9.
Login to the LiveAction Licensing Portal in another tab
Once you are logged in, you will see your LiveNX 6.0 License(s) here. In the Details column, click on the “eye” icon to obtain your Key and Secret:
Go back to the webUI, enter your Key and Secret, and click Submit.
Click on Activate:
Once your license is activated, you will be re-directed to the About page. Here, you can verify the Server and Web version has been updated to 6.0.0. After confirming, the upgrade to LiveNX 6.0.0 has been completed.
Once the data is migrated, import the backup configuration file (.lfg) that you exported in Step 3. After importing the .lfg file, restart the Server Management Console by going to Manage > Stop Service, then Manage > Start Service.
Install the LiveNX Client and connect with using the credentials from your previous install.
