How to move CIM to different machine

Coverity Ninja
Currently Being Moderated




You can't move your CIM installation to a different machine by copying the database files. The process for moving to a new machine is essentially the same as the process for upgrading to a new location.


Essentially, the process for moving your CIM installation is:


  1. Use cov-admin-db to backup the CIM database on the old server.
  2. Install CIM on your new server.
  3. Copy the database backup file to the new server.
  4. Use cov-admin-db to restore the CIM database on the new server.
For more information, please see the following.
  • In "Coverity® 5.5.3 Integrity Manager Administration and Configuration Guide" see "1.6. Upgrading Integrity Manager" and "Chapter 3. Administering the Integrity Manager database".
  • See also "Upgrading your current CIM to 5.4". The process is the same for other Coverity versions.
