Sometimes a server needs to be recreated on a higher version keeping the same hostname. As a result, applications needs to be moved/ reinstalled as well so we are going to explain how to do so for a Dollar Universe node.
Dollar Universe installed in a Unix / Linux server.
Here is a brief description of the actions to move a node from server A to server B.
Action on old server A - Stop all queues on node and wait until jobs Complete or cancel those Running. - Stop Dollar Universe - Unregister the node (unims -unregister -login XXX -pwd XXX) - Backup Dollar Universe folders containing data and log: For example: /uniacndata/NSPPHK (data and bin ) and /uniacnlog/NSPPHK (log) by tar command - Copy the tar files to the server B or to a shared folder. - Stop Server or remove it from the network so that the hostname is resolved with server B.
Action on new server B : - Install from scratch the node with same company name / node name / ports and folders without registering it to the UVMS. - Restore the previously backuped tar files containing the data and log folders. - Register node (unims -register -mshost xxx -msport xxx -login admin -pwd xxx) - Start the node
