    Move nodes and history between NPM installation NOT Additional polling engines

    kiilerich

      installationI need to move nodes, and the historical information, from one NPM installation to 2 other NPM installations.
      It is not between a NPM and an “Additional Polling engine” but 2 separate NPM installation each with its own database.
      I know that someone suggested simply shutdown the 1st  NPM at the copy the database to the 2nd server. But my database on my 1st installation also contains data from IPAM/NTA/IP-SLA modules that I do not have installed on the 2nd server.

       

      Anyone knows how to move nodes in this scenario?

          Hi Rasmus,

           

          Doing a backup of the database, and restore it on the SQL server that the 2nd server will help.


          The 2nd NPM that does not have the modules will just let it pass. If you just have Orion NPM, it should generally look at NPM tables in the Orion database, and should not factor in the rest of the tables.

           

          But this will cause orphaned tables. You might need to clean up the database thereafter.

          It should not be hard, as most of the tables will have some indication on the modules it belongs to e.g. prefixes VoIP will belong to IPSLA, etc.

           

          HTH.
