Decommission the old server

Note If the old server is protected, and if you do not plan to decommission it after the migration, the old server must be reprotected from the new Sophos Enterprise Console server in order for it to become a managed computer.

To decommission the old server:

  1. If you are disposing of an old server, it is advisable to securely wipe or destroy its hard drives(s).
  2. If you are reusing the old server, uninstall Sophos Enterprise Console and Microsoft SQL Server using Windows Control Panel and later delete the database.

You have finished decommissioning the old server.
