you will need to upgrade to Ocularis, that requiers a new license so you should make sure you are CURRENT.
Are you doing an in place upgrade or are you migrating servers? I suggest migratin to new hardware to enhance the peorformacne and allow you to protect the recorded video if needed.
The new platform needs SQL DB for the base.
I suggest getting an integrator to come in and advise on the nest solution for you. if you dont trust an integrator hire a conslultant to over see the job.
also if you have not herd Marty used to be an ONSSI instructior and im sure he can advise on the best path and get you intouch with the proper folks.
I work for an integrator and I have done quite a few large upgrades from older version of NetDVMS to Ocularis. I do all the planning and work on behalf of the customers.
Both servers are in place and I am between OnSSI service companies right now. If I read you correctly, my best bet is to hire someone to do this as soon as possible. Right?
Anyway, thanks for the guidance!
I would not go as far as asying you need to upgrade ASAP, but you should definalty look into upgrading some time in the near future.
make sure the integrator you choose as qulified tech with a good under standing of the product both old and new.
make sure they give you a plan and a backup plan in case the upgarde does not go as planned.
Backups on NetDVMS are quick and easy. And restores are farly quick as well.
Luis, points well taken and thanks for your candor!
