Restore from Backup on New Machine

Recommended Posts

My Emby Server's SSD bit the bullet last week and since the machine is nearly 5 years old and still on Win7 I decided to update.

 

Since it will have different hardware and a different OS will restoring from backup work? My backup resides on a drive separate from the boot drive and is still in tact but on the new setup I'll be recording to a new 1Tb m.2 drive rather than a separate SSD and there may be some drive letter and other changes too.

 

Also the backup was made under 4.2.0.26 I believe and we're now on Server Version 4.3. Anything special there to consider?

 

TIA

Yes, it will work from W7 to W10.

 

I have previously moved my Emby server to a different physical computer and I used a backup via the plugin on the old PC.

 

I set up Emby on the new PC (adding the libraries etc) and let the library scan run.

 

Created the users and then I restored the watch status via the backup plugin on the new PC, after copying the zip across from the old PC.

So you have to recreate the users or pull them in from backup?

 

The backup created by the plugin is in zip format?

 

Good thing this is 8 core 16 thread with a GTX 1060.. that initial library scan is going to put it through the paces with 5-320 bif creation.. or will it reuse existing bif's and metadata?

I'm having some issues with restoring.. I think it is because the paths are wrong so Emby Server keeps crashing as it is looking in the wrong place. I can get one, maybe two paths edited before it crashes again. Any quicker way to do this by directly editing the database?

 

I reinstalled yesterday on my new server and there's several small server logs which I zipped up along with the installation log. This is all logs created in the last few hours as every time it crashes a new log is generated so I don't know which one might have information needed to diagnose.

In the case of paths having changed, I suggest not restoring the library definition and just re-entering it properly.  Since it is different, this shouldn't be much less work.

First off.. THANKS FOR THE LIGHTNING FAST RESPONSE!!!!!

 

That's what I'm trying to do now, deleting the library folder paths. I can do one or two before it crashes and I have to kill embytray then restart Emby Server from the Windows Start Button..

 

Can this be done manually in the db file itself?

Could it be that the server was updated during my down time and I restored to the latest stable server? Looking at my Plugin List now.

I would remove all user-installed plug-ins.  You can just move them to some other folder and restart.

 

See if the server still crashes.  If it does, we'll need to look at specifics of the crash.  (Event log entries, entire server log, etc.)

How do I know which ones?

Thanks! So not necessarily User Created Plugins as some of those are created by you guys.. I'll get to moving them now and report back. Thanks.

I re-installed quite a few from the Catalog. Now the Server is crashing again. How to determine which one(s) is(are) the culprit(s)?

Guest asrequested

It's probably one of the plugins created by a member. Remove all of those and see what happens. If it's stable, just add one at a time.

Did you identify which plug-in was causing the problem?

 

Not yet but right now it is running so I'm going to re-install them one by one. I'm thinking an old one like PlayOn or maybe PodCasts or TuneIn?
