MDS Migration

Hi Guys,

I am planing on doing some migration of our MDS. We have multiples MDS and the platforms and software version will all be the same--nothing is changing with IP addresses or configurations.

Since the platform, software version and everything  will exactly be the same, I am thinking about just running MDS backup from each of the MDSs.

Build the new MDS servers with a clean installation and restore the backups on their prospective MDS.

Am I missing anything else or is there a better route to this? Anything else I need to be aware of?

Note: This is a VMware environment

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Exactly as you said.

Just create the mds_backup like this:

mdsstop; sleep 60; $CPMDIR/scripts/mds_backup -l -b -d /home/scpuser 2>/dev/null; sleep 60; mdsstart -s

scp the mds_backup file to your new VM host and perform a mds_restore


Thanks for the feedback Danny.
