Moving GIS Server

Discussion created by ScheidVineyards1972 on Jun 16, 2014
My company has a corporate office and a field office which are about 50 miles apart. We put our GIS Server in the corporate office because it has great internet connection speeds, but I work from our field office. This requires me to edit my data over this connection because the data is in a Geodatabase in an instance of MS SQL Express 2008. To improve my editing performance we're talking about moving the GIS Server to the field office. Other than redirecting our DNS to the new IP and opening ports on the field office firewall are there any other changes I'll need to make? We're moving the whole machine, not migrating to a new one.
