If you want to migrate your system to ISPadmin 5, there are several possible courses of action:

  • Migration within a single machine
  • Migration from an old server to a new one
  • Migration within a single machine (virtualization)
  • Migration from one server to another (virtualization)
  • Migration from your server to our cloud solution
  • Migration from our cloud solution to you own server

In all the above-mentioned cases, migration is carried out exclusively by our experienced technician. That will help keep any complications to a minimum. Migration from version 4 to version 5 is free of charge. Any further migrations or extra services are subject to a charge (according to the current price list).

Before migration, it is necessary to check whether the server meets the minimum requirements. The requirements mainly depend on the number of clients that are to be managed by the system. The following table gives you a few relevant ballpark figures:

Number of clients CPU RAM HDD – System HDD – Data
Up to 500 4 cores 8GB 80GB
501 – 2000 8 cores 16GB 100GB
2001 – 4000 12 cores 32GB 80GB 80GB
4001 and more Determined on a case-by-case basis Determined on a case-by-case basis Determined on a case-by-case basis Determined on a case-by-case basis

If we find out that the server does not meet the minimum requirements, we will immediately inform you of the fact and suggest a possible solution (component upgrades, new server purchase, etc.).

The migration process looks like this:

  • If migration is to be carried out within a single machine, it is first necessary to connect a disk to the server so that a backup of the entire system can be made. As soon as you connect the disk to the machine, let us know. Our technician will make the backup. When it is finished, you will be contacted by our technician.
  • Boot the server from the bootable medium (DVD, USB flash drive) that you created from the ISO file that you downloaded from the link provided by us. You do not do this if your system is to be migrated from your own server to our cloud solution.
  • Choose the Remote install option from the menu that appears on the screen and fill in all the required data.
  • Let us know that everything is ready for the upcoming migration.
  • Our technician will carry out the ISPadmin 5 installation and then migrate the data to the system.

Detailed information on Remote install:

  • Download the ISO file from the link we sent you.
  • Create a bootable medium (DVD, USB flash drive) from the ISO file.
  • In BIOS, set the correct boot sequence. The bootable medium created has to be the first in the sequence.
  • The server boots from the medium and a menu appear. Choose the Remote install option from the menu.
  • Enter the IP address. It has to be a public address so that we can connect to the server from the Internet.
  • Then, enter the mask.
  • And finally, the network gateway.
  • As soon as all the required items are entered, an overview of the entered IP addresses appears on the screen. Click on the Yes button to activate them. All the preparatory steps have now been taken.
  • Contact our Technical Support and tell them that everything is ready for the upcoming migration.
