Migrating from an AAOP Password Server to Passly

Question

How can we migrate our legacy AuthAnvil On-Premises Password Server into the Passly integrated cloud Password Server?

Answer

The Integrated Password Server has a migration tool built directly into the tenant.
Note: As of Passly v7.1.12 the Notes from the AAOP Password Server will be gathered by the export. 

Migration

There are some differences between the two products.

User access controls

You will want to create a Passly security group in your tenant for each Role that you use in AAoP Password Server. See this guide for setting up Groups
Note: Users will need to log out and log in before they see any new Vaults once added to the group(s).

Password Policies.

If you have created any unique AAOP Password Server policies those policies will need to be manually created by following these steps.
Note: Failure to create custom Password Policies might cause the import to create an excessive number of polices.

  1. Log into to your Passly tenant https://(companyname).my.passly.com 
  2. Select Password Server,
  3. Select Password Policy.

  8. Run VaultMigrator.exe
    Note: We recommend that elevate the command when this is run (Run as Administrator).

    Note: Database name should be AuthAnvilPasswordServer.

    Note
    : If you installed AAOP using a default installation this would normally have used Windows Authentication. If you were not the original installation admin you might need to review your SQL user access groups.
    Note: SQL Server\Instance. If you have installed AAOP 2FA/Auth Manager then check the web.config located in C:\Program Files\Scorpion Software\AuthAnvil\AuthAnvilSAS on Line 27 you should see something like <add key="DBServer" value="dbserver.\authanvil" />.
    Note: The AAOP Password Server web.config can be located in C:\Program Files\Scorpion Software\AuthAnvil Password Server\AAPS
    Note: It is optional to include personal Vaults, they are not required for the migration
  9. Once you have entered the above select Start Migration.
  10. Migrator tool will export to \\VaultMigrator\zip\
  11. In Passly > Password Server select Next.
