I tried to move our installation to a new server and was following the Administration Guide. The old server is v9.2 on Windows 2008 R2 with SQL 2008 R2 Express installed with v9.2. The new server is SQL 2012 R2 with SQL Server 2016 Express installed before v10.2.
First issue was that the repository wouldn’t register because the Laserfiche services were running as Local System and that account login was denied in SQL. So I changed the services to run as the logged in account which is an administrator and then the repository would register.
Second issue was with the search catalog, followed the Administrative Guide to delete and recreate it.
At that point, the v10.2 installation appeared to be running, but the 10.2 client installed on the server couldn’t connect, kept getting no response from server. Same error trying to connect from a 9.2 client computer.
During the 10.2 installation it appeared that the firewall was adjusted for Laserfiche connectivity and the same entries appear on both the new and old server firewall incoming rules list.
What else besides checking the checking the firewall ports would cause this issue?
