Moving the Mobilty Database to different Volume

I was hoping someone has done this and has a procedure for this, I come across Admins that install the Mobility server completely to the root volume on SLES - and then soon get tight on space.

Is there a way to move the postgres database and the logging location to a different volume? (one that can be expanded if need be) - Is there a quick and dirty way to point the configs to a different path (like you would a POA or MTA)?

Hoping someone out there has had to do this!!

Re: Moving the Mobilty Database to different Volume

Hi,

Welcome to the forums and thank you for your question.

I had a situation where my /var partition ran out of space. I used this TID: https://www.novell.com/support/kb/doc.php?id=7009620

Essentially you add a new disk to the server, boot into recovery mode, copy the contents of the directory in question to the new disk, edit the mount points and reboot the server. The mount point for /var comes up and everything runs per usual as the applications don't see any difference. This negates the need to edit all of your applications to point to a new location. After the fact you can remove the "old" directory once you are satisfied that all is working correctly.

Please let us know how it goes.

Cheers,
Laura Buckley

I agree with Laura. Better still though...next time read the install notes and the manual before installing. Put the application and data on a separate volume/disk where it will be much easier to upgrade space if you need to...a little planning goes a long way...
