Customer wants to move all database to a new path with KXP 3.3 environment.
Can they just modify the SERVERDATABASE Value path inside KofaxReg.xml file as following?
To modify JobsPath/BatchesPath/JobTemplatesPath/ScanProfilesPath inside App.AppProfile file and then copy all folders and files from old database path to new database path or also have to change a registry key value, especially this one: Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Kofax\Kofax Express\DatabasePath  



Above is indeed correct, in addition please find below the list of things that need to be changed:

- Modify Windows Registry - Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Kofax\Kofax Express\DatabasePath

- Modify SERVERDATABASE value in KofaxReg.xml

- Modify Job.JobProfile for every jobs on the server, and in \Jobs\<Job Name>\D folder, change the JobsBatchesPath element value to match the new directory path

- Copy everything from Old Server Data directory to New Server Data directory

Before doing above steps, please stop the Kofax Express Server service.

And restart this service when all of above things are done.

If everything is correct, you will see batches listing in Express window as before the database directory movement.
