    Easiest way to migrate LMS to another hardware server

    I had to migrate to another hardware (Windows Server 2012 R2). So I install LMS 7.9.1 but I also want to transfer my configuration , plugins, and alarmsettings etc.
    Is there a way to do this?

    Any suggestions are appreciated.

    Hi,

    i dont think so.

    "Easy" is something like:

    Grap your old system, use the lmswebgui and add all your settings to your new System.

    Looks Easy is something like:
    copy your old stuff to the new system and ask yourself for x hours wtf isnt my system running anymore...

    I found a hidden map called: ProgramData/Squeezebox/ with 3 maps (cache, logs, prefs) that I copied to my new server. And it works! I had only a little problem with Spotty. He could not find VCRUNTIME140.dll. But I fxed that also.

    But thanks anyway for your suggestion.

    My solution was easy enough for me. :-)

    Just for the records /archive

    Thats NOT the recomended way - this solution just works cause the old and the new system might be similar.
    If the old system is built long time ago and the new system is something like up2date - please dont do it!

    I made sure that de LMS versions were the same and also the platforms. The only difference is the hardware.

    Maybe I've been lucky.

    In other cases I might not work. A future request could be to get an export and import module for the configuration and installed plugins.

    This covers it. More or less what you did making sure paths are correct.

    A straight copy will keep the server uuid the same - so if the two LMS servers are online at the same time you'll have problems as they'll look the same to the players. Delete server_uuid in the new prefs and get a new uuid.

    The easiest way to move LMS freely between different HW platforms, is to run it Docker. Then it is abstracted completely from whatever HW you have, and it can be moved easily.
    QNAP TS-453Mini 4x3TB RAID5 QTS 4.3.4
    LMS 7.9.1 running in Docker
    Madsonic 6.2 running in Docker
    Plex running in Docker

    QNAP HS-251 2x2TB RAID0, QTS 4.3.4
    Kodi 16.1 Jarvis

    QNAP TS-119 1TB Single, QTS 4.3.3
    Almost Retired

    Easiest way to migrate LMSto another hardware server

    As I was thinking along these lines as well, but still have some questions:

    is there a recommended Docker image?

    How do you start Docker (ports)?

    Where do you store your preferences and database? I assume it is outside docker, as it should be easy to move?

    I think it would be useful, to add something on LMS in Docker in the wiki and possibly even have an “official” docker image?

    I haven't been able to find a Docker image that is sufficiently up to date but I am considering an LXC Container on QNAP instead.
    Pi3 pCp/LMS storage QNAP TS419p (NFS)
    Living Room - Joggler & SB3 -> Onkyo TS606 -> Celestion F20s
    Office - Pi3+Sreen -> Sony TAFE320 -> Celestion F10s / Pi2+DAC & SB3 -> Onkyo CRN755 -> Wharfedale Modus Cubes
    Dining Room -> SB Boom
    Kitchen -> UE Radio (upgraded to SB Radio)
    Bedroom (Bedside) - Pi2+DAC ->ToppingTP21 ->AKG Headphones
    Bedroom (TV) - SB Touch ->Sherwood AVR ->Mordaunt Short M10s
    Everything controlled by iPeng
