Is it possible to do a parallel install of Password Manager without the Realm option

I have a live dual server realm at V5.5 and about 15000 active users and want to do new servers for the upgrade to 5.6.2.

Is it possible to do this without using the import/export with realm?

Is it just a case of manually re-doing the config on the new servers and making them a new realm of their own? More concerned about the question/answer order so that it matches the current config.

Thanks,

  • Yes, you are correct. If you want to keep all existing questions & answers you must import the configuration from where those users exist in order to retain the encryption.

    Each new installation of Password Manager generates its own unique encryption key. As such, you cannot install a new server in an existing environment / realm and have users retain their Q&A profiles. If users were to login to the new server they would be prompted to create a Q & A profile - meaning all users would have to re-register.
