What is the process for moving NodeBuilder to a new server?

The best option, within Node Builder export out all the nodes you currently have. Back up the Node Builder SQL database. Install the same version of Node Builder on the new server and then import in the nodes you exported.
You could also restore the SQL back from one server to the other server, after installing the same Node builder version, but you will need to reset the DBO (Database owner) and user access as the users from one SQL Server to the other SQL Sever does not match.

I’m getting the error: The server does not exist or does not have Node Builder installed. The server name is correct and I just installed NodeBuilder. How do I correct this error?
