MIGRATING ACL TO A NEW SERVER

The configuration of ACL composes of two items, a SQL database and a file share. Should your firm
decide to relocate either of these, we have laid out the steps below to assist you through this process:
Enabling Remote Connections
On the new server you will need to ensure that Remote Connections are turned on in SQL so that users
have access to the server. To do this
1. Click on Start  All Programs  Microsoft SQL Server  Configuration Tools  SQL Server
Configuration Manager
2. Expand SQL Server Network Configuration  Select Protocols
3. Ensure that Named Pipes and TCP/IP are enabled. If they are not you can enable them by double
clicking on them.
4. If you enabled these protocols you will need to restart the SQL service. You can do this from within
SQL Server Configuration Manager  SQL Server Services  Restart SQL Server (MSSQLSERVER)
Note: When trying to connect to the SQL Server from a workstation, if you cannot connect via ACL, you
may have port 1433 (used for SQL communication) may be blocked by your Windows/Hardware Firewall.
Moving the Database
1. On the existing Server click on Start  All Programs  Microsoft SQL Server SQL Management
Studio.
2. Expand Databases  locate the ACL database  right click on ACL  Task  Back Up.
3. Click on Add and select a local folder to save the backup to. Be sure to include the file extension
.BAK  click OK.
