Hey

Does any one know if it is possible to use the same way to migrating Enterprise Vault Servers to 64-bit hardware for version 8 sp5 like it is for version 9

If you can't upgrade to EV 9, then you can move EV 8.0.5 to a Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 bits installation which is supported with that version of Enterprise Vault:

No, there isn't a EV Server Settings Migration Wizard for EV 8 to EV 9. 

It might actually be easier to upgrade to EV 9 on existing hardware and then use the SSMW to move to EV 10 on 64bit.

Here are some references docs, in case you missed them.

Hi Mias,

It's not possible. You can use themigration wizard from 9.0.1 or later:

Note: The Enterprise Vault Server Settings Migration wizard supports migrations from Enterprise Vault 9.0.1 or later source servers, to unconfigured Enterprise Vault 9.0.1 or later target servers.

Take a look at the PDF:

You will need to upgrade to EV 9 on your existing hardware first.

In that case, upgrade to EV 9 on the same server and then you can go ahead and migrate the Enterprise Vault installation to a 64bits hardware.

the case is that I’m not available to upgrade to version 9, but need to migrate to another server and OS
