Is there a tool or existing procedure to migrate one specific CMA from a Provider-1 A to another Provider-1 B that has different  IP different IP address?

Thanks,

Re: Move one CMA from a SDM to another SDM

Hi,

 

./migrate export -> backup the domain

cma_migrate -> to import


The new CMA can have another IP.


If you have VSX you must worry about some issues

Re: Move one CMA from a SDM to another SDM

This sounds straightforward enough.

We're looking to move one of our CMAs onto a brand new MDS. So do you simply you import the CMA into the new MDS? Does this rely on not using Global Objects in the policies?

Would it be possible to:

- take the entire MDS backup

- restore it to a new device

- Change MDS IP

- Change CMA IP

- Delete any unwanted CMAs from the new MDS, just leaving the one we want

- Create new MLM/Secondary MDS and sync up

This would then preserve the Global Objects/Policies which may be used in the existing Security policies on that CMA.

Does anybody have any advice on the best way to do this?

Re: Move one CMA from a SDM to another SDM

Hi Alex,

I think the best way is:

  • create the new MDS (New IP)
  • Detach GLOBAL POLICY from the CMA you want to move
  • Migrate GLOBAL POLICY
  • Migrate CMA (to a new IP)
  • Attach the GLOBAL POLICY again.

(I'm assuming that you aren't using VSX)

Refer to sk66225 - Recreating a global policy on MDS for migrated CMAs 

I never migrated the MDS like your are suggesting but if you want to try that you have to be careful with the leading interface and the new IPs. Please read:

For my answer I'm assuming R77.xx

Re: Move one CMA from a SDM to another SDM

For the Global objects, when you first migrate the Global policy to the new MDS using migrate_export and migrate_global_policies, then there is no need to remove the Global policy, just leave it there and migrate the CMA.

For the info on how to do the Global migration see Gaia R77 Versions Installation and Upgrade Guide 

One of the main reasons not to duplicate the existing MDS by doing the backup path is that you also copy the CA which will give you problems in later stages when you might need to move another CMA to the new MDS.

Re: Move one CMA from a SDM to another SDM

Thanks for the responses - I should have stated that this will be R80.10, not R77 - will the same apply?
