Moving "company files" to a new server and QB installation

Hi all,

 

We are moving our server environment into the cloud and decommissioning the server where our QB installation lives currently, this server also contains our company files.  I have already installed QB on the new server.  My question is, what is the proper method to move those company files to the new server?  Can I just copy the entire QB folder and move over, or is there more to this process? 

 

Thanks,

 

Brandon

Hello Brandon,

 

Thanks for reaching out to the Community. I'd be happy to help get your file moved to the new server.

 

I always recommend doing a backup before starting the process, but after you've installed QB on the new server, you can copy and move the entire QB folder over. If you're going to be sharing the file over the network, once the file has been moved, make sure it's set in multi user mode so more than one person can be in the file at the same time.

 

Solution 3 in the following article will also outline the steps to move the folder: https://community.intuit.com/articles/1501891 .

 

I'll be here to help should you run into any problems moving the file over.
