Migrating Qlk Sense to new servers. IIS to Proxy

We are planning on migrating our current Qlik sense environment from 2012R2 servers to 2019 servers.  We have an IIS server set up as a reverse proxy in our DMZ and one Central server in the App network zone.  We would like to stand up a Qlik sense proxy server in our DMZ instead of the IIS server.  Is it possible to stand up the new Proxy and Central servers then back up and restore data or should we point the IIS server to the new Central server, backup and restore data, then create the new Proxy server?

Hello @J_Mulholland 

For the migration of the server from 2012 to 2019 you would need to install qlik sense on the 2019 servers in the same release and patchlevel as in the current environment. Then you follow the backup and restore process from the help site

https://help.qlik.com/en-US/sense-admin/August2021/Subsystems/DeployAdministerQSE/Content/Sense_Depl...

 

You can for the moment after this repoint the iis to the new central. After this step you add  and configure a proxy on the rim node and you can stop the reverse proxy after that.

So in short no need to add the configuration before the migration it can be done after that.
