How to move existing RAS installation to new machine from an old one?


In order to migrate your existing Remote Application Server installation, do the following:

  1. Deploy a backup agent to New Machine:

    • In RAS Console go to Farm > Publishing Agents (Backup Servers in v14.1) > click on +


  2. Change New Machine's priority to Master:

    • On the new server open Console go to Farm > Backup Servers > right-click on new added server > Promote Backup to Master


  3. Change Parallels clients to point to new server:

    • File > Add new connection...


  4. Remove Old machine's RAS agents (Gateway, Publishing, etc.) using RAS Console in New Machine.

  5. Remove RAS from the Old Machine using Windows Control Panel

NOTE: Should the old master server act also as a Terminal Server Agent within your farm, if the goal is to decomission the old server, it is important to install the software published on a new Terminal Server and update the publishing rules to reflect the new installation.
