Windows JOIN 5.0 to Synergy SKY Management Suite Migration - VMRs

Summary

This document outlines the process of migrating data from Windows JOIN 5.x to Synergy SKY Suite.  This is to be used if you have VMRs running.  The purpose of this is to insure consistent meeting spaces that are already provisioned for future meetings. 

Note:

Pre-requisite 

  • Windows JOIN 5.x
  • Synergy SKY Suite 2.2+ Server Deployed
  • VMRs - CMS, Pexip or Static 
  • Separate Online License 
    • Do not reuse the Windows JOIN License, as it's possible to lock out
    • Synergy SKY SA/SE can provide a temp license to facilitate the transition  

Prerequisites

Synergy SKY Platform Configuration

The Synergy SKY product has been deployed and running in a virtualized environment and the basic platform configuration has been completed. If this requirement is not already fulfilled, please start here.

Previous JOIN 5.0 Installation

Ensure your Windows server is running JOIN Version 5.x. If you are currently running an older version of JOIN(3.2, 4.0, 4.1), you must upgrade to JOIN 5.0. Current CONTROL/ANALYZE version does not matter.

This is typically located at http://localhost:555

Ensure that your Synergy SKY Suite server can reach port 5432 on your Windows server

  5. Click IMPORT and wait. During the import you will see progress messages, and a full log of the import is shown afterward.
