Currently we have our servers and work stations co-located on one server. I have just finished a new 9.3 VM to move our servers on to and leave the desktops where they are to take advantage of the "Auto Fix" feature. I am able to discover servers and bring them onto the new server, no problem. But I know there has to be a better way of doing this. (CSV, script...something). I don't want to bring the database over because I want to keep the new database as clean as possible.
There are numerous ways of doing this. The way I do it is deploy your new agent from the old server. This will deploy the new agent and they will now use the new server. remember to remove them off the old server. You can also DNS records, etc...but I've found this is best way for me.
Sounds good David, is there a doc that tells me how to relocate the new agent to the old server and where it should be placed? Looking for documentation that I can add to my change control to implement the move.
No doc that I know of. You can create a self contained agent, point to wscfg32 on the new server, etc... and setup a distribution job. As long as the old clients have access to wherever you place the new agent .exe you should be fine. You could also point to the wscfg32 on the new server \ldlogon\. As always test, test, test....
Great and thanks David,
I see right where the agent is configured and how I need to deploy it. Wish me luck.

On your new Core Server, build an Advance agent.
Go to Ldlogon\AdvanceAgent fonder, copy MyAgent.exe and MyAgent.msi, and past this two files on \\MyOldCoreServer\LDLogon\AdvanceAgent\ (create folder if not exist).
Now, on your Old Core Server console, open the tool "Agent Configuration", click on Button "Schedule a Push of an Advance Agent configuration", sélect your new agent.
You can now deploying the new agent of your new Core Server from your old Core Server.
PS: The interest of using DNS C-Name entry is for your devices Out of your office, even if device reappears after several months, it will be automatically integrated into the new Core Server... ;-)
Hope that help you.
Thanks Thomas, this looks like what I was rerading earlier. I am going to give it a shot now and let you and David know how it turned out.
I am not finding the 2 files you mentioned. (MyAgent.exe and MyAgent.msi)
The agent names (.exe and .msi) will be called whatever you named them when you built the Advanced agent (name of your client config). Sort by date in the AdvanceAgent folder and you should find them.
That was right on the money after I pulled my head out my.... Thanks for the assist I plan to move my lower level over next week about 40-60 at a time just to make sure nothing breaks. I only had one other issue that I need to get resolved and that is the CBA 8 authorization error. Any thoughts. Natty lights on me.
Looks like a cert issue, since you will need the certs from new core on old core. Take a look at:
These 5 were from my first attempt at moving the servers over. SInce then, the other 7 have come over without any issues. I think it is in the agent configuration on these servers.
