TP-Link Omada has a feature to help you migrate your site to a new controller and take with it, all the settings and changes you have made over time. The migration wizard will walk you through the process and move the devices over automatically.
NOTE: Both controllers need to be running the same version of Omada for this to work.
Launch migration from original controller
The first thing to do is launch the migration wizard from your original controller. (i.e where we want to move the devices from)
To do this, go to the Global view within Omada and then click on 'Settings'
Next, click on 'Migration'
Then, click on 'Start'
Next, select the site you wish to migrate, select 'Export to Local File' and then click on 'Export'
Once done, the backup file will download to your local machine
Once the file has been downloaded. The following message will display on the screen. Leave this page open and proceed to the next step.
Import site into new controller & migrate devices
Before we can migrate the site, we now need to import the file we just downloaded into the new Omada controller.
First, click on the box with arrow icon
Next, choose a name for the new site, choose 'Import from Local File', select the file which was grabbed from the original controller and click 'Import'
NOTE: If the option choose local file is greyed out, it is because you are using the TP-Link Cloud service. In order to import a file locally you need to connect directly to the Omada controller.
Next, on the original controller input the new inform URL. (this can be found from app.hostifi.com)
Next, click 'Migrate Devices' and they'll go to 'Disconnected' state
Then, on the original controller hit 'Forgot Devices' to avoid any issues
Finally, log into the new controller and you'll see your devices connected
