I'm setting up a staging server to test out an upgrade of some critical software (IBM Rational Team Concert on WebSphere) I'm not going to be able to re-install the app as I don't have all the info and config used during the original install, so my plan is to copy over the necessary folders and copy over the services. I can't find anything which would let me export the definition of the service and import it onto another machine.
Websphere uses a few extra keys around and below the HKLM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Websphere reg entry, but nothing else in the registry.
My current plan is
- create a new service using sc create (using the same service name) on target
- export HKLM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Websphere from source
- import reg keys from above onto target
- start services
Can anyone see a problem with this approach or recommend a tool to handle this?
