How to migrate from a previous version to Password Depot Server 12?

The migration process from an older version of the server to version 12 is quite simple and takes only a few minutes. Follow the steps below exactly to upgrade your Enterprise Server to the current version 12:

  1. Install version 12

  2. Start the server manager of version 12 and set up the same administrator password as in the previous version.

  3. Stop both the server of version 12 and the server of the previous version (please stop the services, not only the server managers!)

    Shutdown server

  4. Copy all Databases from the directory "\Passwords" of the previous version into the directory "\Data\DB" of version 12 (by default "C:\Program Files (x86)\AceBIT\Password Depot Server 12\Data\DB"). The databases are converted from the old .psw format (or .psw7 etc.) to the new .pswe format when used by the Enterprise Server automatically
  5. Copy the file pwd_svr.cfg from the program directory of the previous version into the directory \Data of version 12 (by default C:\Program Files (x86)\AceBIT\Password Depot Server 12\Data) to copy the User and Settings.

  6. Do NOT copy the file pdserver.ini into the new directory.
  7. Start the server of version 12. If you now log in to the Server Manager, you may have to wait a few minutes until it is ready.

Note to connect to clients: The default port in version 12 is 25012.
