Data Protector Migration from HP-UX PA-RISC to HP-UX Itanium

Hi guys,

 

I need to migrate DP 7.01 from HP-UX 11.31 to another server that is also HP-UX 11.31. The catch is that the old server is PA-RISC 9000/800 and new server is Itanium ia64.

 

Can this be done using write/readdb or I have to follow some steps as in Daniel's blog --> http://www.data-protector.org/wordpress/2011/07/data-protector-migration-unix-to-other-os/

 

I trully hope somebody has done this already and has some tips for me.

 

Any reply is greatly appreciated, thanks a lot!

Re: Data Protector Migration from HP-UX PA-RISC to HP-UX Itanium

Daniel got a lot deeper into this than I would have, but the procedure is sound, if a little dated.  I would make note of the fact that, instead of Configuration files being in

 

   /etc/opt/omni

 

they are actually in

 

   /etc/opt/omni/server

 

but, that is a minor point

 

Also, as to step 12.5, you can do a backup of the IDB onto tape, and import that tape into your new call manager, which will include not only the IDB, but the COnfiguration files also.  Restore the files to a temporary directory, stop DP, rename the existing directories, and replace with what was restore inot the temporary directory

 

This is more my opinion than having him change his recommended steps

Hi,

Migration done. I have contacted DP support and they pointed out that exactly my situation was present in the manuals (attached file page 176).

However we kept server name and IP so I migrated using wirtedb and readdb + copy of configuration folders from one server to another and it worked.

 

Thanks!
