Migrating from IWSVA 5.5 to IWSVA 5.6

 
IWSVA 5.6 only supports partial migration if you want to restore back to a previous backup IWSVA 5.5 configuration. IWSVA 5.6 does not support migration from another language version.

To migrate from IWSVA 5.5 to version 5.6:

  1. Open the web console of the source IWSVA 5.5.
  2. Go to AdministrationConfiguration Backup & Restore, and then click Export.

    The screen displays a progress bar. When the export process is finished, a result page displays the status. After a successful configuration export, IWSVA opens a dialog box to prompt you to save the configuration file to a local disk.

  3. Save the file to a local drive on your computer.
  4. Open the web console of the target IWSVA 5.6 machine and then click Administration > Configuration Backup & Restore from the main menu.
  5. Click Browse to select a backup file and then click Import.

Migrating from IWSVA 5.6 to another IWSVA 5.6

Note: IWSVA 5.6 does not support migration from another language version of IWSVA 5.6.

A full migration from one IWSVA 5.6 device to another IWSVA 5.6 device is only supported if both devices are configured in standalone mode.

To perform a full migration, make sure the hardware configuration and deployment mode are the same on both IWSVA machines. Trend Micro also recommends you configure both machines to use the same IP address to prevent unexpected behavior after a full migration.

If the IP address information in the backup file is different from the IP address of the IWSVA machine to which you want to import the file, the migration results screen will not display. In this case, you can view the migration results in the Audit Log screen.

After a full migration, if the separate management interface is enabled on the source IWSVA machine, you must use the management IP address of the source IWSVA machine to access the web console on the target IWSVA 5.6 machine.

To migrate from IWSVA 5.6 to another version 5.6:

  1. Open the web console of the source IWSVA 5.6 machine and go to Administration > Configuration Backup & Restore.
  2. Click Export to back up the configuration.

    The screen displays a progress bar. When the export process is finished, a result page displays the status. After a successful configuration export, IWSVA opens a dialog box to prompt you to save the configuration file to a local disk.

  3. Save the file to a local drive on your computer.
  4. Open the web console of the target IWSVA 5.6 machine and then click Administration > Configuration Backup & Restore from the main menu.
  5. Click Browse to select a backup file and then click Import.
     
    If you are migrating from a source IWSVA 5.6 to a target IWSVA 5.6, and both devices are configured in standalone mode, you can choose to perform a full or partial migration. Otherwise, by default, only a partial migration is performed.
  6. Choose an option and click OK to continue.
