I do have a question concerning the DFM Database migration. The migration was successful, and the reports on the new system within OPS Manager are consistent with the old system. However, there is a difference in the reports/graphs from the Management Console application. I can only see a date range going back to the date of the database migration. The old system has information dating back further. Is this a known limitation, or is there a way around it?
- We migrated from DFM version 184.108.40.20632 to 220.127.116.1136. - Installed OnCommand Core 5 (64 Bit version). - The original system was Windows 2003 R2 EE. The new system is Windows 2008 R2 (64 bit) - Timezone is the same on both systems
- The NetApp Management Console on the old server is version 2.3. The new one is 3.1 - On the Management Console, we see all of the configurations that were originally created. However the Max Range for the graphs differ.
1. Ran dfm backup create on old system 2. Installed OnCommand Core on new system (unconfigured) 3. Copied dfm database from old system to new system 4. Ran dfm backup restore on new system
The restore completed successfully. All Groups, Member Details, Licenses, etc. were migrated. The only thing we modified on the new system was the Backup Destination and the FQDN for the HTTPS Settings.
I was wondering of the migration steps you have done.
1. Ran dfm backup create on old system 2. Installed OnCommand Core on new system (unconfigured) --> Pure install only. Stop some services? 3. Copied dfm database from old system to new system 4. Ran dfm backup restore on new system --> After the restore, do you have to shutdown the old dfm then start the services on new server?
If you have documentation, would you mind posting it here?
