Kofax Document Exchange Server Installation Guide


Kofax, Inc.

Back up the following:


All files in the folder where you installed Kofax Document Exchange Server


All Registry settings


The backup may require large amounts of disk space.

The installer also backs up folders and data in case an error prevents the upgrade from

completing. The installer can then use the backup to roll back to your previous configuration.

The following folders are backed up:




DES, except DES and EmailWatcher






Install Logs



The following are also backed up or exported:




Registry (Kofax Document Exchange entries only)



VRS and JRE are not backed up and cannot be rolled back. When the upgrade has been completed

successfully, you have the option of deleting some or all of your backup files.

Even though the installer performs this automatic backup, you should still back up your data and

settings manually in case a failed upgrade cannot be rolled back.

Saving Custom Workflows
Custom workflows are not upgraded. During the upgrade, workflows are exported from the

database as part of the backup. The exported workflows are saved in the backup folder you

specify in the installer in a workflow folder. Use the exported workflow files if you do not have

the original .wfd files.

After performing the upgrade, deploy the custom workflow on the server with Kofax

Administration Console. Refer to the Kofax Administration Console Help for more information.

Preparation for Upgrades

Before upgrading a Kofax Document Exchange Server with attached MFPs, make sure that all scan

jobs from the MFPs have been sent to the server. Any scan jobs that have not arrived at the server

are lost during the upgrade.
