Re: How to switch an enterprise gateway?

Hi @gjadal,

 

In my opinion, you can create a data source under the new data gateway in Power BI Service via Manage Gateways, then go Settings->Datasets, there will be two data gateways available, please configure the dataset to use the new data gateway.

After that, you can remove the old data gateway. In this way, the report will always be online.

@gjadal In power bi service click on Settings icon (wheel) on top right hand corner -> Manage gateways -> Remove your old gateway from the list. Then go to your dataset settings and provided you have added data source under new gateway you will have an option to choose this new gateway (as old is removed by you).

 

Alternatively old gateway from service, remove your report (if not shared with anyone currently), then re-publish your report and it will use your new gateway (provided old gateway is removed, new one has data source added).

@gjadal: Hope the below helps.

 

Step1: Prior to migration, i.e. from a local machine personal gateway to server based enterprise gatewway, ensure you do the last refresh for the dataset and archive for backup / recovery purposes AND copy the files and validate the authentication of the new gateway (using Azure preferably on a domain machine and the same access rights as per the first gateway's credentials.

 

Step 2: You need to add the new gateway for the new source from the admin console for the same dataset. once configured ( we are not yet at the sync stage ....), you will come across something like the below.

Step 3 ( Optional 😞 You can stop the services for sometime of the first gateway to ensure the dataset doesnt sync or show online. Ensure no other reports on running on this gateway ( i.e. Gateway 1)

 

 

Step 4: Select the second gateway from the list. You should be able to see it if the authentication is successfull. ( depends whether you are using file/db/live content based source )

 

Step 5: Once the setup is replicated, now you need to re-run the authentication for the enterprise gateway locally and over the portal and check the connection works. Depending on your data size, monitor the refresh over the new gateway till it's not compelete.
