How to Move the MBAM 2.5 Websites

Use these procedures to move the following MBAM websites from one computer to another, that is, to move the following features from Server A to Server B:

  • Administration and Monitoring Website

  • Self-Service Portal

Important
During the configuration of both websites, you must provide the same connection string, Reports URL, group accounts, and web service application pool domain account as the ones that you are currently using. If you don’t use the same values, you cannot access some of the servers. To get the current values, use the Get-MbamWebApplication Windows PowerShell cmdlet.

To move the Administration and Monitoring Website to another server

  1. On Server B, install the MBAM 2.5 Server software. For instructions, see Installing the MBAM 2.5 Server Software.

  2. On Server B, start the MBAM Server Configuration wizard, click Add New Features, and then select only the Administration and Monitoring Website feature.

    Alternatively, you can use the Enable-MbamWebApplication Windows PowerShell cmdlet to configure the Administration and Monitoring Website.

    For instructions on how to configure the Administration and Monitoring Website, see How to Configure the MBAM 2.5 Web Applications.

To move the Self-Service Portal to another server

  1. On Server B, install the MBAM 2.5 Server software. For instructions, see Installing the MBAM 2.5 Server Software.

  2. On Server B, start the MBAM Server Configuration wizard, click Add New Features, and then select only the Self-Service Portal feature.

    Alternatively, you can use the Enable-MbamWebApplication Windows PowerShell cmdlet to configure the Self-Service Portal.

    For instructions on how to configure the Administration and Monitoring Website, see How to Configure the MBAM 2.5 Web Applications.

  3. If the client computers in your organization do not have access to the Microsoft Content Delivery Network, you also have to move the JavaScript files. See How to Configure the Self-Service Portal When Client Computers Cannot Access the Microsoft Content Delivery Network for more information.

  4. Customize the Self-Service Portal for your organization. Use the instructions in Customizing the Self-Service Portal for Your Organization to review your current customizations and to configure custom settings on the Self-Server Portal on Server B.
