Tenable Appliance to Tenable Core Migration Overview

Last Updated: December 19, 2019

Note: The Tenable Appliance is an end-of-life product. For more information, see the bulletin. Tenable recommends migrating your Tenable Appliance deployments to Tenable Core.

The Tenable Appliance to Tenable Core migration process varies depending on your current Tenable Appliance deployment and your desired Tenable Core deployment.

You must migrate instances of Tenable Appliance individually to Tenable Core. Tenable currently does not support a bulk migration for multiple instances.

If you have multiple Tenable Appliance instances supporting different applications, Tenable recommends migrating your applications in the following order:

  1. All Tenable Appliance + instances
  2. All Tenable Appliance + Nessus instances
  3. All Tenable ApplianceNessus Network Monitor instances

For more information about migrating many instances of Tenable Appliance, see Large Deployment Considerations.

Note: You cannot change applications during the migration process. For example, you can only migrate Nessus on Tenable Appliance to an instance of Tenable Core + Nessus. If you need to change applications, contact Tenable Support.

If you need to change versions, see Version Requirements.

Tip: If you encounter issues with the migration, contact Tenable Support.
