[wpkg-users] WPKG Server Migration

Hi Dale, 

This is something I'd suggest you handle with DNS, have a CNAME of, for instance, wpkg.yourcompany.com pointing to your fileserver. Then if you even need to change server you just copy the files to the new server and re-point the CNAME at the new server. 

You may need to use Paul's update package idea this time, but still make a CNAME and use the update package to point to this. 

Cheers Jon

Hi there, 

My company currently deploys wpkg updates from 1 server via executable (.exe) packages. But now we’re de-commissioning that server and want to move the wpkg.js file and everything else to a new server. 

What methods can I use to do this, so that all the client machines that are pointing at the old (current) server change to point to the new one? I want to avoid manual installation on all the clients. We use Active directory but I’m not aware it can do this. 

Kind Regards, 

Dale Goodwin
