Move data from 4.2.3 to 4.2.5

I just installed a virtual 4.2.5 Zenoss server into our VMWare stack from the pre-made virtual Zenoss download.

 

Firstly, I can't find the actual user name and password to logon to the CentOS server.

 

Second, how do I move my data from my old 4.2.3 server to my new 4.2.5 server?

 

Thanks.

zenbatchdump and zenbatchload

zenbatchdump and zenbatchload, right?

 

Is there a trick to get zenbatchdump to work on 4.2.3?  It seems to expect to run from /bin instead of where it is in /opt/zenoss/bin.

Nope, I was doing it as root.  Will try logging in as zenoss.

So I figured out how to make zenbatchdump and zenbatchload work but I've got a problem.  My old server has 589 devices and my new server after loading only has 205 devices.  Suggestions?

The zenbatchload command will

The zenbatchload command will attempt to run SNMP on each device. If the device doesn't support SNMP, it won't be added to the inventory.

 

So that might explain my missing devices.  Is there any way around that?
