2637977 - How to copy a MainframeConnect DirectConnect Installation


You want to make a copy of an existing MainframeConnect (MFC) DirectConnect installation on the same host or on a different host of the same OS.

Reasons for doing this:

  • establish a new test/dev/qa environment
  • hardware migration
  • existing installation version is no longer available for download

This article outlines the steps required to create a duplicate copy of an existing DC server installation for Unix/Linux only.  Windows installations make use of the Win Registry which complicates the copy process and makes it prone to error.  For Windows installation(s) it is recommended to do a fresh install of the product and copy of over the configuration files from the existing installation.
