Migrating of Enterprise Recon 2 to a new Master Server



This article shall serve as a guide on how to migrate your current Enterprise Recon (settings,history,etc.) to a new Master Server.
SCP will be used to transfer the old Enterprise Recon 2 files to the appropriate directory in the new Master Server.


  • New Master Server with latest version of Enterprise Recon 2 installed
  • Ensure there are no activities running in Enterprise Recon 2 on both new and old servers
  • SCP connectivity



  1. Login to your Enterprise Recon Terminal console as 'root' on both Master servers
  2. Stop the Enterprise Recon service on both servers with the command; /etc/init.d/er2-master stop
  3. On the old server, transfer the Enterprise Recon core file to the new server through SCP with the command; scp root@<old server ip>:/var/lib/er2/db/root.kct root@<new server ip>:/var/lib/er2/db/
    ( eg. scp root@ root@ )
  4. On the new server, change the owner of 'root.kct' from the old root user to the new one with the command; chown erecon:erecon root.kct
  5. Start the Enterprise Recon service on the new server with the command; /etc/init.d/er2-master start
  6. Test the new Master Server by connecting to it from a Node Agent.
    Be sure to use the new Master Server IP address!
