All data, including logs, configuration policies, etc. are stored in ERA database except DB connection string which is stored in directory "c:\ProgramData\ESET\RemoteAdministrator\Server\EraServerApplicationData\Configuration\".

Once you move DB and run ERA installer, it will re-create connection string (you will have to handle migration of DB users by your own, or new user will be created during installation).


You may also follow relevant documentation articles.

I just did this - you are better off if you do the installers separately so that it doesn't set up a new account/server. Once all is installed, restore your database. I left the old server up for a little while just to make sure everything transferred ok. The part where you get the workstations to connect to the new server is where I had issues. I tried to run a task to accomplish this, but it always failed. In the end I had to run a "repair" installation on each workstation. Luckily, I don't have that many so it wasn't too much of a hassle.
