Topic: Installing Rec6 from scratch

We need to (re)build a network version of Rec6 on a new Server. I was wondering if there was an install CD from which I can run the various updates, etc.? If so, what version is available? Regards

Re: Installing Rec6 from scratch

V 6.30 is the latest install version. This can be downloaded  from www.Recorder6.info  see http://www.recorder6.info/page16.html

There is various documentation on the Recorder6.info site and you might also find the post at https://forums.nbn.org.uk/viewtopic.php?id=6271 useful

If you want further help please  advise

1. The Version of Sql Server you are currently on and the version for your new install
2.  Your current version of R6 
3. Whether of not you have R6 mapping you wish to retain

Re: Installing Rec6 from scratch

Please note that the latest install version is now 6.30. You are advised to install this.

Users who do not use the R6 mapping may find it easier to

1. Install V6.30 on the new server.
2. Check that it is working
3. Move the database and users files
4. Run the upgrades to 6.30 on the new server

Users who use R6 mapping and wish to retain the setup

1. Upgrade their existing system to 6.30
2. Take a backup (through mapping) of their mapping system
3. Install V6.30 on the new server.
4. Check that it is working
5. Move the database and users files
6. Restore mapping (see 'Managing of R6 Mapping System' documentation at http://www.recorder6.info/page31.html )
