Hi everyone,

I recently inherited a production server in our environment which is running Flexnet publisher. I need to look into what's involved with migrating these services to a new Windows 2008 server.

Has anyone ever done this? Could anyone direct me in the right direction?

Windows Server 2008 is a certified platform (where 2000 isn't, in the latest FlexNet Publisher version), so from that standpoint it should be straightforward. The Flexera Software web site has the latest lmgrd and lmadmin utility versions.

Of course, if it's a new system, you'll probably need new license files or re-activations from the vendors whose licenses you're serving.
