Migrate webNetwork to windows / linux

To move from Linux to Windows on the same hardware:

Backup the current install to cd, pen drive, network, etc... 
Be sure to TAR, ZIP, GZ the files before transferring them or you risk corruption.

* Install windows

* Make a c:\stoneware directory

* Install a copy of UW that is the same version that you already have or copy the /stoneware/jre dir from an another webnetwork server running on windows in your environment.  The goal is to get the proper jre directory for your OS.
 
  Also from this same source, copy :
  /stoneware/bin/webnetwork.lax  (Verify the memory settings match that of your backed up file.)
  /stoneware/bin/lax.jar 
  /stoneware/bin/webnetwork.exe
  /stoneware/jre/lib/security
  
* Copy the backup of linux files to the windows box, minus the 
  /stoneware/temp
  /stoneware/jre
  /stoneware/jre/lib/ext    (any custom jdbc drivers you may be using)


Bring things up and then modify the PATHS on the relay object to change from linux / to windows c: (for each relay you are moving)
Change the path to hsql in the reportLogs and CommunitiesDB connections if using hsql (if moving webNetwork server -aka loader).
Do both of these through Web Admin which can be accessed from the 8090 console.

Bring things back down, and back up.

Use the small utility (webNetwork Service) on the www.stone-ware.com utilities download page to set up webNetwork as a service.

It is also a good idea to apply the latest hotfix to all boxes after the update.
