Migration and Upgrade

You can install Reflection for Secure IT Windows Server on systems with an F-Secure server or Reflection for Secure IT version 6.x. Reflection for Secure IT automatically migrates your current identity (host key and certificates) and settings. Your existing key and configuration files are not changed.

  • Existing host keys (hostkey and by default) are copied to the new key location, so you don't need to make any changes to clients that are configured to trust your current host key.
  • Settings in your existing sshd2_config file are migrated to the new xml configuration file. Migration information is saved to the migration log file.
  • If you used a password cache, cached passwords are migrated to the new password cache file.


This migration occurs the first time you:

  • Start the server console this triggers the migration of keys and settings without automatically starting the server.


  • Restart Windows this triggers the migration and automatically starts the server using the migrated key and settings.

    Note: If you have an existing xml settings file, the server will not migrate the settings from a previous version settings file. This enables you to configure a single settings file and install it onto multiple servers.
