  1. Thanks for your posts!

    The other things you should consider (when refresh DB in Test or Dev environment) are:
    – remove users emails – because you don’t want them receiving notification from DEV.
    – change system accounts (MAXADMIN, MAXREG…) passwords – good style to have different psw
    – change passwords and URL in Interface table End points (if you have integration)
    – delete scheduled reports – or users will get several copies of reports from different environment

    That’s pretty much it. 😉


  2. We are contemplating installing Maximo App on Linux instead of Windows for stability and security reasons. WE are looking for the pros and cons of this step, and thanks in advance.
