Migrating from Primary to Secondary - PWH DB Settings

Hi,

We are using the DT Migration utility to migrate data from our Primary to Secondary server.. The DB strings are migrated across as part of the server.config.xml file.

Is this possible to included the DB password with any of the migration steps?

or are we required to manually type the password in under PWH connection details

Many Thanks

Jamie

If you are using the migration utility, these settings should be copied over to the new server. It won't make the password visible, but should still connect using the same connection string with username and password.

Hi @Jason W.

Thanks for your reply, I was think that was the case as well.. but for some reason the password is not being migrated across as well.

I have just re-executed the migration with a 'full' option (so should copy everything) and checked the connection details for the PWH and the password is still missing..

The configuration details are there, they are migrated with the service.config.xml but just not the password.

Cheers

Jamie
