This article provides information for migrating from Replay 4 to AppAssure 5.
If you have implemented Replay 4 and want to migrate to AppAssure 5, you can use this article as a road map for this upgrade/software migration.
The AppAssure Migration Tool archives all Replay 4 recovery points, allowing customers to convert recovery points into an acceptable format for the new AppAssure 5 Core. Once converted, the AppAssure 5 Core reads these data points and is able to perform file-level recovery on the Replay 4 recovery points.
Complete the following steps to perform a migration. (You can refer to the Replay 4 to AppAssure 5 Migration Guide for the latest information about migrating from Replay 4 to AppAssure 5 as well as the prerequisites for performing the migration.)
You should note that the AppAssure 5 Core is capable of only performing file-level recovery on imported Replay 4 recovery points (that is, server restores are not possible).
While hardware specifications may meet the minimum requirements, they may not be able to fully accommodate your same environment within AppAssure 5. For more details on the exact requirements to run AppAssure 5, see the Replay 4 to AppAssure 5 Migration Guide.
