Relocating Servers

As I will be relocating two of my servers from one location to another and the IP address will change as well, could you tell me what all places I need to change the IP to be perment and things to take care of.

From my side I have I have taken a full backup to be on the safer side.

What are the other things to take care of so that I plug in the server to make it running like now.

Re: Relocating Servers

Boot your server to single user mode and run "set_parms initial".

Hope this helps!

Re: Relocating Servers

Hi

--->> could you tell me what all places I need to change the IP to be perment and things to take care of.

As Torsten tell you, this command will initially change lots of things, like the IP and hostname.

-->> What are the other things to take care of so that I plug in the server to make it running like now.

1) Like the site itself: the power, air conditioning etc...
2) if the storage will be changed, you have to consider lots of things in this case.

Re: Relocating Servers

Hi,

the command is set_parms as mentioned.
I'd use

/sbin/set_parms ip_address
/sbin/set_parms addl_netwrk

So you can set everything you need about IP address, netmask, default gateway.

Best regards,
Fabio
WISH? IMPROVEMENT!

Re: Relocating Servers

Shalom,

Of course
/sbin/set_parms ip_address
Will work.

As will a manual edit on /etc/rc.config.d/netconf

It is well documented. Just don't save a backup copy in the /etc/rc.config.d directory

Re: Relocating Servers

David,

be aware that some commercial software is licensed to IP address, as in Data Protector.

I don't know what commercial apps you may be running, if any, but it is something to watch out for.

In addition to the full backup, I'd make an Ignite backup as well. That would reinstall the vg00 / OS related stuff back to existing congfiguration if anything untoward happens during the move.
