Migrating from evaluation to production

For a smaller environment, when you setup an evaluation setup as a pilot or pre-production setups, enterprises may consider moving pre-production/evaluation setups to a production environment to save time on configuring and rebuilding the system. Refer to the below steps to migrate and harden your environment for a production setup.

Before you begin

  • If you wish to migrate and also update Sectona to the latest version in the production environment, check for the same with Sectona Sales/Support team. If the update is available make sure you have the latest update package available.

  • Make sure you have factored the number of IP address(es) from the production network to be assigned to Sectona server(s).

  • Make sure you have all the necessary port and network communication enabled in your production environment for Sectona. For more details refer to Standard Port Requirement for Installation.

  • Ensure you have a copy of Sectona License to change the license from evaluation to production.
