    Converting a old Tableau Primary Server to a worker node

    Katherine Woods

      Hi all. I am in the process of converting an older Tableau Server primary node (Windows environment) to be a worker node on the new server environment (also Windows). I know that I need to uninstall Tableau Server first and am planning to use the tableau-server-obliterate script. Since this system will now become a worker for another Tableau Server environment, I think I should also use the -l option to remove licensing, since the new primary already contains that information. Once this obliterate is completed, I think I should then be able to install the Tableau worker software on this system without any problem.

       

      Has anyone done this? If so, can you offer any information on the best process and/or anything to look out for during this uninstall / reinstall process?

       

      Thanks!
