Performing a live copy of a Operations Center server


Hi,
I need to make a live copy of a Operations Server installation. The
configuration uses an object store.
I was able to perform a copy of configuration and moving it between
server by shutting down the server,
copying the object db file in configstore directory (and some other
relevant files) and then manually updating the other server.
In this case I can't stop the server (production environment) and the
object db file in the configstore directory is quite old,
surely I will lose a lot of updates and modification.
Anyone knows if there is a way to force object store syncing without
shutting down the server ?
If I define configstore on an external database, will it be continually
updated (so that I can perform a live copy) or
will it be updated as if it were a file based configstore ?

Regards
Evelino Bomitali

Re: Performing a live copy of a Operations Center server


That database is a single user database and you are not able to have
more than one database account logged into it. I'm not sure, but I
think the Operating System locks the file down, plus if you have a
running NOC, it will not auto re-read it if you find a way to swap it
out while NOC is running. The only options you have are...

1) Shutting down NOC and performing a copy of the entire database,
placing it on a non-running NOC, then starting it up.

2) Running an export from Administration/Server element, then an import
on the other system. Both systems can be up and running and most of the
configuration is re-read dynamically (IE: Adapters may show up, but they
won't autostart).


Keep in mind that when you bring the config store over from one system
to another, there are a few things that you should update. IE: If you
have DEV NOC pointing to a development version of a warehouse or event
store repository or adapters pointing development instances, etc.

I can only assume that you are trying to do a one time copy and in the
future you are only going to want to bring specific views. There is
another way to bring specific views from one system to another such as
using the View Builder mechanism where you export from one to generate
the XML file and then import on the other (Look under Administration for
View Builder). Some of this can be automated with scripts.
