Q: How do I move CertiFlexDimension Ultra to a new server?
A: The following procedure is for moving Certiflexdimension Ultra to a new server if you are running Btrieve 6.15 and not the Actian Pervasive SQL or Btrieve V12 Client/Server database engine. To check what database engine is in use, go to the Tools menu in Certiflex and click on Database Driver Utility. If the number in the Major field is 6 and the one in the Minor field is 15 then follow the procedure below otherwise see the article titled Moving CertiFlexDimension Ultra to a new Actian Pervasive SQL or Btrieve V12 Client/Server database engine
- Create a shared folder on the new server. Keep the name simple, and short i.e ACCTCFLX.
- Give all users read/write access to shared folder.
- Copy CertiflexDimension Ultra from the old server to the shared folder on the new server.
- From each workstation browse to folder …\shared folder\CertiFLX\Advx\CUser\ and run WKSETUP.EXE as administrator then follow the prompts from the wizard.
NB: You should never check the option to install Btrieve unless the system prompts you to.
