I have an existing 64-bit FreePBX 10.13.66 system which is working great.
I would like to move to the SNG7-PBX-64bit-1904 distro and move to new hardware at the same time. Because of this, I think I need to use the Distro Conversion Tool described here: https://wiki.freepbx.org/display/PPS/Elastix+and+PBXinaFlash+to+FreePBX+Distro+Conversion+Tool
For testing purposes, I installed SNG7-PBX-64bit-1904 on a test server, activated it, and went through the conversion process. It seemed to work great!
Question: I have a number of Commercial Modules and they are unlicensed on the new server (unsurprising). In order for the licensing to move over, I understand I have to remove the license files from the old server (well documented) and then move the licenses for the Commercial Modules to the new server. My questions below are basically concerning the migration of the configuration of these Commercial Modules.
I have the following questions:
- If the licensing matter is addressed properly, does the Donor Conversion Tool also migrate over the settings/config for the Commercial Modules? EPM is the big one for me.
- If yes, should I be moving the licenses for these Commercial Modules over BEFORE using the Distro Conversion Tool?
- If yes, would the process for the eventual move of the existing server to a new production server (after testing is complete) look something like this:
Activate new server
Unlicense commercial modules from old server (ie. remove hardware lock)
Add commercial module licenses to the new server
Use the Distro Conversion Tool to move the config from the old server to the new
If the Distro Conversion Tool does not handle the migration of the configs for the Commercial Modules, I am guessing I should instead migrate on existing hardware using https://wiki.freepbx.org/display/PPS/Upgrading+from+FreePBX+10.13.66+to+SNG7 and then move to new hardware as a separate process. Right? Or recreate the missing configs (eg. EPM) by hand?
Thanks for any pointers you can send my way!
