Unable to move Active forms from one server to another server manually

Post by valletchuman » Wed Mar 06, 2019 1:42 am

Hi Folks ,

i tried copying one file with .xlsx.blob from Applications folder in one server to another server while migrating that object . but after server restart i can see the objects but i couldnt open that file it was saying links are not available . Do i need to copy any other files to that server along with BLOB ? can anyone suggest .

Thanks ,
Val

Is the destination instance name same as source instance name? If not, you may need to update the excel file (in }externals) with the correct instance name.

The method described in this post is a pretty common way of setting up workbooks/websheets to automatically set the server name to the instance currently logged into.
Please place all requests for help in a public thread. I will not answer PMs requesting assistance.
