Switching to a new UniFi controller

Tue 05, May 2020 unifi ubiquiti wifi network

My new CloudKey Gen2 Plus just arrived in the post today. Moving everything over with next-to-no downtime was very simple:

  1. Get a backup: Settings -> Backup -> Download file (you can adjust the timespan)
  2. Shut down the controller
  3. Open up the new controller
  4. Select Restore from backup in the setup and upload the backup file

That's it!
