    Cloverleaf 3.8.1 is running on an older server (AIX 4.3).  I want to install  5.5 on a new server (AIX 5.5).  I have reviewed the Site Promotion instructions.  My question – Can I perform the site promotion with the roots on two different servers?  If yes, how?

    Thanks!

      Donna,

      You should be able to tar up your existing sites and simply lay them back out on the new box under a root3.8.1P directory you create.  This is just to allow the hcirootcopy scripts to do it’s job.  However, with that said, I would put an ‘official’ query into Quovadx Support to insure that you follow their recommended procedure(s) to avoid any potential support issues.

      Hope this helps.

      I have used Jim’s method twice with good success.  Don’t forget to check your scripts (typically in “usercmds” directory) and things to ensure the new paths are correct.

      Donna.

      We’ve completed a few migrates of Cloverleaf and server OS.

      In essence we

      1. ‘tar’ the site source

         (NetConfig, formats, tclprocs etc, but not the database)

      2. use the normal ‘hcisiteinit’ to create the new site

      3. install the tar file

      4. load and adjust the NetConfig if required

        (we scripted this for out Cl3.5.5 -> 5.1)

      When all sites were migrated, we ran the standard scripts that update the formats etc.

      We also created Cloverleaf ‘pipe’ and ‘crossover’ sites to handle the staged migration that saved modifying the ‘real’ NetConfigs

      Here is the script ( tar_site_to_move.ksh ) that I’ve been using to tar up the site to move:

      Code:


      #!/usr/bin/ksh

      clear
      echo “”
      showroot
      echo “”
      echo “Is this the site you want to move to another machine?”
      echo “(y to continue; anything else to quit)”
      read xyz
      if [ “$xyz” != “y” ]; then
          exit
      fi
      if [[ ! -d /upgrade ]]; then
          echo “FATAL ERROR – need to manually create /upgrade directory”
          exit
      fi
      if [[ ! -d /upgrade/new_box ]]; then
          echo “FATAL ERROR – need to manually create /upgrade/new_box directory”
          exit
      fi
      cd /upgrade/new_box
      rm -rf /upgrade/new_box/$HCISITE /upgrade/new_box/$HCISITE.tar
      mkdir /upgrade/new_box/$HCISITE
      tar_tar_dir $HCISITEDIR /upgrade/new_box/$HCISITE
      tar -cvf $HCISITE.tar ./$HCISITE
      chmod -R 777 /upgrade/new_box/$HCISITE
      rm -rf /upgrade/new_box/$HCISITE

      Then I FTP the tar file to the /upgrade/new_box directory on my new server and proceed to run the untar_prep script.

      Here is the script ( 521_untar_prep_mdahub4_site.ksh ) that I’ve been using successfully to migrate the tar file from the old machine to the new machine and upgraded version of cloverleaf (I successfully migrated to a new server and upgraded from 3.5.5 stepped through 3.8 ended up at QDX 5.2.1 using this):

      The scripts in my previous post might seem like more work than it is worth.

      However, we currently have 129 test sites and 61 production sites so I have scripted every step of an upgrade as much as I can.

      That way the migration cut over is as short as possible and I can do iterations using the scripts until they seem flawless.

      Plus I have a record of what was done and is a good starting point for the next upgrade to help remember what needs to be done in what order.

      Russ,

      We are looking to upgrade from 3.8.1 to 5.7
