Server Move

I have one more server Move comming up tomorrow... i.e.. forklift a server from A to B... Here the IP address are going to change..

At location B it will have a different IP from Location A.. It will take at least 4 days to ship it to new place..

Things to do at A(Two copies of the following):
------------------
# cd /opt/ignite/bin
# make_recovery -C

I will also collect the following:-

/etc/rc.config.d/netconf
/etc/hosts
/etc/rc.config.d/nfsconfig

What are the other things I should do at Location A...

I know Ignite Image is only to recover VG00 in the event if needed to recover the data..
So what all should I do or take apart from Ignite Image to forklift a server...

Now what all should I do at location A before I bring the server down .. and what all should I do at location B before and after I bring the server UP...

Plz advise.. I have 3 servers to forklift

Re: Server Move

Hi,

I would suggest you to take Ignite image ( make_recovery is very old and no more supported).

2. Full back up of all data

3. If your storage is external take vg cofiguration to a mapfile in preview mode. and vgcfgbackup aslo.

Shalom,

You say:
I know Ignite Image is only to recover VG00 in the event if needed to recover the data..

You should know: If you shut down the databases, Ignite can migrate them as well. I've done it.

If however the data is on shared storage its better not to use Ignite to migrate the data.
