How do I transfer Tofino CMP to a new computer?

CMP may be moved to another PC using the following steps:

  1. Log in to CMP and create a backup of your existing configuration database ("Tools | Database Admin | Database Backup..." menu item)
  2. Install CMP on the new PC. If installing on Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Server 2008 then please take note of the special requirements in Appendix B of the CMP installation guide.
  3. License CMP on the new PC using the same License Activation Key that was used on the existing CMP computer. When you e-mail the license request file to Tofino Security, include a note in the e-mail indicating that you are moving the license to a new PC.
  4. Once CMP is licensed on the new computer, transfer the backup file that you created in step (1) above and restore it into the new CMP using the "Tools | Database Admin | Database Restore..." menu item.
