Moving POS to new computers

Post by TGates »

Scott,
We have purchased new computers. We would like to switch the server to one of the new computers. What is the process?
Thanks, TGates

1. Using a USB stick copy the file pospizza.PZ6 from your current server's folder ( C:\POSPizza6\Server ) and save it on the flash drive.
2. Download the server from the forums and install the package on the new computer.
3. Remove the dongle from the old machine, and plug it into the new machine.
4. Copy the database file ( pospizza.PZ6 ) from the USB to the new computer's server folder ( C:\POSPizza6\Server ).
5. Using the server admin tool, install the server service and start it on the new computer.
6. Using the PDF from the server folder, add an exception to the windows firewall on the new server.
