How to migrate the HRPro database and program files to a new server?

  1. Back up the databases dbSystem and db[Application] from the old server.

  2. Back up the folder where HRPro is located on the old server (i.e. the shared folder with all subfolders).

  3. Install Microsoft SQL server 2012/2014/2016 (32/64bit are supported) on the new server (make sure mixed mode authentication is selected).

  4. Restore dbSystem and db[Application] on the new server, and define a user to access these databases. (e.g. the sa)

  5. Restore the HRPro folder on the new server and share the folder among the system users.

  6. On each of the client's machines, locate the newly shared HRPro folder and replace the old link with a new link pointing to HRPro.exe. (i.e. delete the old shortcut and create the new shortcut)

  7. Execute new HRPro.exe by double-clicking the new shortcut, and entering the SQL Server/login information as requested. (e.g. the sa and the password)
