Cluster Move Procedure to New Site - Cluster IP Unchanged

Steps need to follow while moving one cluster to a new location: using same network setting (same cluster IP address )

Before moving the cluster to a new location, configuration replication jobs in Eyeglass should be working properly and configuration synced to target cluster.

  1. Disable configuration replication jobs in Eyeglass before turning off the cluster being moved. 

Note: For Failover scenario, the failover away from the cluster that is going to be moved should be completed successfully

- config replication jobs that synced the configuration from source to target in disable mode

- Jobs on the active cluster are green.

Login to Eyeglass    click on Jobs icon in desktop   Job Definitions  check the box to select jobs in Configuration Replication:Share, Export, Alias replication and/or Configuration Replication:Access Zone replication   (if applicable) and/or

Configuration Replication:DFS mode  (if applicable) and/or

Configuration Replication:Snapshot Schedules (if applicable) and/or

Failover: Runbook Robot section (if applicable)   Select bulk a action Enable/Disable to disable the jobs 

  1. Then Turn off the cluster to be  moved. 
  2. After the cluster is moved to the new site and powered up, check the connectivity between the cluster and Eyeglass appliance.  (Hint: you may ping the cluster  IP from Eyeglass.)
  3. Enable Configuration Replication:Share,Export, Alias replication jobs in Eyeglass.  

Login to Eyeglass   click on Jobs icon in desktop   Job Definitions  check the box to select jobs in Configuration Replication:Share, Export, Alias replication  section Select bulk a action Enable/Disable to enable the jobs.

Note: Enable any Snapshot Schedules, Configuration Replication:Access Zone replication, Failover: Runbook Robot  jobs were enabled before cluster move.

  1. Run the configuration for one replication cycle to verify configuration replication jobs working properly.

Steps need to follow while moving one cluster to a new location: using same network setting (different cluster  IP address )

Before moving the cluster to a new location, configuration replication jobs in Eyeglass should be working properly and the configuration synced to the target cluster.

  1. Disable configuration replication jobs in Eyeglass before turn the source cluster off. For Failover scenario. Failover should be completed successfully - config replication jobs that synced the the configuration in disable mode.  

Login to Eyeglass    click on Jobs icon in desktop   Job Definitions  check the box to select jobs in configuration replication:shares, exports, alias replication  section Select bulk a action Enable/Disable to disable the jobs

Notes:

DFS jobs should be disabled; if any, before turn off the cluster.

From Eyeglass 1.6.3, Snapshot Schedules and Access Zone replication should be disabled.

  1. Turn off the Source cluster.
  1. Reset the Eyeglass appliance.

Reset Eyeglass  to re-add the cluster (different IP address will be added to Eyeglass for the moved cluster) .

SSH to Eyeglass appliance using admin: sudo -s enter (must use root)  then use admin password (default password: 3y3gl4ss)

  1. cd /opt/superna/sbin
  2. ./reset.sh
  3. Once reset completes, login to chrome browser and refresh the browser and login with the credentials.
  4. Now, add both of clusters using Management subnet SSIP.
  1. After the cluster is moved to the new site and powered up, check the connectivity between the cluster and Eyeglass appliance. (Hint: you may ping the Eyeglass IP.)
  2. Enable Configuration Replication:Share,Export, Alias replication jobs in Eyeglass.  

Login to Eyeglass   click on Jobs icon in desktop   Job Definitions  check the box to select jobs in Configuration Replication:Share, Export, Alias replication  section Select bulk a action Enable/Disable to enable the jobs.

Note: Enable any Snapshot Schedules and Access Zone replication jobs were enabled before cluster move.

  1. Run the configuration for one replication cycle to verify configuration replication jobs are working properly.
