Move Storegrid to new server

Postby Mikrodots1 » Mon Jul 12, 2010 1:28 pm

Could you please point me in the direction to move Storegrid to new hardware.

The existing installation is in Windows and I want to move it to a Windows box.

Data is on a NAS and will remain in the same location.

I've considered leaving the older server in place and using clustering - but I don't see that option available.


Thanks,

Mikrodots

Hi,

You can find the instructions for Migrating Backup Server from one machine to another machine here:

Could you please elaborate your requirement so that we can provide you with the suitable solution.

Thanks for your help.

In the cluster instructions there is this:

How to get here in the StoreGrid Web Console?
In the top menu of Backup Server, select: "Server Admin -> Cluster Management -> Cluster Settings" page.


But I don't see that menu item in my installation - I'm guessing I needed to select clustering during the installation.

I was considering adding a second server in a cluster and keeping the other server running as well.

Thanks sundar_SGS -

Instead of migrating from the first server I would like to start over from scratch (I only have a couple backups that I can easily redo).

So think of it as if the original server and data were completely destroyed and no longer available.

After building up the new server how do I recover / reassign the MCALS that are assigned to the original server?

Thanks,

Mikrodots

Hi Mikrodots1

In that case, you need to contact our support team at storegrid-support AT vembu DOT com. They will look into the history and suggest what would be the best way to migrate the MCAL licenses

I need exactly the same procedure for a 2.5.1 server (or a 2.5.1 client/server). I need this so that I can then perform the necessary upgrades to get to version 3.x, as the current box has some dependencies that don't allow me to install MySQL.

Can you post a link?
