**Please reach out to us a few days prior to your scheduled server move(s), so we can have a team member available to assist as needed.**
If you are moving or upgrading your server, our services and alerts will stop working. Therefore we need to coordinate with your IT on the following:
For e-Automate server move ONLY:
- We need our CEOJuice database backed up on the old server and moved over to the new e-Automate server (if not done already)
- We need to have a SQL authenticated user 'ceojuice' created in SQL and given the same permissions and roles that we had on the old server Please see this link for those instructions: https://support.ceojuice.com/hc/en-us/articles/360033302032-Creating-SQL-User
Once the server move is complete and the two steps above are done, please let us know the new server name so we can coordinate access to the server to validate our connection to the e-Auto database and then re-link our services.
If our services are running on your e-Automate server as well, please proceed to this next section...
To confirm if our services are running on a server, please check for these two services:
For server moves that our CEO Juice Service is running on (which may be your e-Automate server):
1. Add both the .Net Framework 3.5 AND 4.8. The SSRS import process requires 3.5 and e-Automate requires 4.8.
- .Net 3.5 can be added from the add roles and features in Server Manager. Windows installation media might be required.
- .Net Framework 4.8 download available here: https://dotnet.microsoft.com/download/dotnet-framework
2. Install and configure a current e-Automate client on the new server for us to access so we can test our Custom Reports
We will need to meet with your IT via an online meeting for the following:
**If you can do prior to our meeting, this will save us time**
1. SQL Server (Express OK) installed on the new server to house the software's data store. We also will need SQL Server Reporting Services and SQL Server Management Studio installed. If installing SQL Server Express, be sure to install the Advanced Services Version which includes both SSMS and SSRS. Note that since SQL Server Express 2016, SSMS is a stand-alone install and SSRS is stand-alone since SQL Server Express 2017.
2. A backup of our CoreDB, ReportServer and ReportServerTempDB restored in SQL on the new server.
3. A copy of our CEOJuice and Lucee Folders (usually under C:\ or D:\ root) moved over to the new server.
CEO Juice Server Requirements:
CPU: Minimum 2 Cores
Memory: 8GB Recommended
Disk Space: 60GB total space (we won't use this much, it is more for Windows to be able to grow with updates, etc)
SQL: Express ok, with Advanced Services. version: 2012-2017
Windows Server 2012R2 or higher
