Upgrade to new Cloud Key Gen 2 Plus?

Hello all.

 

I'm fairly new to UniFi gear. I have a Cloud Key Gen 1 and want to replace it with a CK Gen 2 Plus I just purchased in order to add cameras to my environment

 

Looking to do the swap with a minimum of drama, if any. I do have nightly backups of my current CK. Found the link below-- is this what I need to do to swap Cloud Keys without any data loss?

Thanks very much.

Hello @JosephMoran,

 

You can download a backup and import it on the new UCK.

I personally would do a site migration from UCK1 to UCK2

That link does mention the migration as an alternate method to backup/restore, so I'll try that-- thanks for the tip.

 

Just so I'm clear, in order to do the migration looks like you first have to do initial setup on the second CK to have both running concurrently?

Hello @JosephMoran,

 

Correct, the UCK G2 has to be past the setup wizard.
