How to move an MI or MJ license from one server to another

Find the current MondoSearch installsearchhostdata folder.
In this folder you will find a set of .CFG files, this is the list of files needed:
MssWorm.cfg —> (This file must be edited to fit the new installation location there is one string setting for the location of the database)

Also there COULD be 2 XML files needed to be moved: (Only for information manager)

Copy all of these files out in to a backup folder.

Also make a list of the host names/domains you have set MondoSearch to index!

Go to and get a new pincode. Install MondoSearch on the new server.
Now uninstall the MondoSearch install on the old server.

Configure the MondoSearch install to index the same set of files.
After this do a grab of the site and make MondoSearch publish to production.

After this first grab and publish copy in the files that you took a backup of.
(Make sure that the path in the MssWorm.cfg file fits the new location.)
