Move MAS 90 to new server

I found out today that a client copied their MAS 90 4.4 folder to a new server.


They didn't follow the following recommendations from Sage, but everything seems to be working ok.


Question:  is it necessary to perform the following tasks, or is copying the MAS90 folder and subfolders and remapping the workstations sufficient?


Sage MAS 90 or 200 4.40:

  1. Install a brand new MAS90 or 200 to the new location
  2. In the new location login to MAS90/200 and use Parallel migration utility to migrate data from your source install. For more information on this utility please visit Sage Software Online and visit Important installation section under support options for Sage MAS90 or 200
