Moving Enclosures from one OneView instance to another OneView instance

At the moment we manage two locations in one OneView instance. We like to move some enclosures to another OneView instance. Is there an easy way to do this or do we remove them from the current one and readd the enclosures on the new instance. Which also means recreating server profiles etc, etc, etc?

We are running version 2.00.07

Later we want to upgrade the instances to version 3 and start using the global dashboard.

I hope there is an easy way to get this done.

Kind regards,

Raymond

Re: Moving Enclosures from one OneView instance to another OneView instance

HPE OneView cannot move or migrate another HPE OneView configuration or managed resource.  Moving your HPE BladeSystem enclosur from one appliance to another will require downtime, and resources to be recreated.  There are some PowerShell scripts you can use.  Take a look at the Samples on the HPE OneView PowerShell Library Wiki.  Look for the Import/Export Resources script.

Since we are now 16 months beyond you last comment, "HPE OneView cannot move or migrate another HPE OneView configuration or managed resource."...

Has anything changed? Can we now migrate a OneView to another OneView using v4.00.07?

Re: Moving Enclosures from one OneView instance to another OneView instance

We did not add any new migration features to HPE OneView.  This use case is not currently on our backlog to support.  I have some questions:

  1. Can you help describe the intent and use of a feature like this? 
  2. How frequently would you use this feature? 
  3. What would you expect to happen when dependant resources that exist on the original appliance are not found on the target appliance?
  4.  What about event and activity history?
  5.  For HPE OneView 4.00 and newer, Scope Based Access Control settings?
  6. If this feature would only be used one time, is scripting the resource creation on the target system and then performing the Remove and then Add operations not sufficient?
