Can DBUtil be used to migrate an existing Oracle database to a new server?


Yes. You can use DBUTIL to move/migrate the Kofax Capture database to a new server.

  1. Open DBUTIL

  2. Enter the new instance, database name and password

  3. Click Apply

  4. DBUtil will migrate to the new instance.

Additional Information:

  • This process will delete the original Oracle database. It is recommended to make a backup first

  • It is required to process all existing Batches out of the system

  • Export all Batch Classes and confirm that you have backups of any customizations, Release Scripts, etc.

  • Temporarily disable the Kofax Capture Network Service. This will prevent Remote Sites from updating the database

  • Verify all users are logged out of Kofax Capture and will remain logged out until the process is complete

  • Update the ORACLE_HOME setting in ODAC to point to the new Oracle server
