Pinned topic Cloning a TSRM production Environment

‏2013-06-25T13:43:55Z |

Good Morning,

Our organization has TSRM 7.2.1 which comprises two production servers. One being the app server/admin workstation in RHEL 5.The other being the database server, which is hosted on AIX 6.1.

To avoid multiple and unnecessary complications from a migration process, we are thinking of cloning our environment (the Red Hat is a virtual server). In the case of AIX, it is using a SAN-based storage which we can clone and then attach to another LPAR within our blade server. We have been through all of this process the last two days without any serious issue.

Having said that, what post-cloning activities and configurations should we perform in order to get a decent new test/development enviroment?  what can we expect from changing ip addresses, hostnames and the like?

thanks as always for your support.

    Hello, we have WebSphere app server and DB2 database. WebSphere on RHEL and DB2 on AIX.

    Knowing the versions of WebSphere and DB2 is helpful.

    Our test environment was WebSphere 6, DB2 9. We installed a standalone demo environment (maxinst) on Windows Server 2003 vmware. After I had the sysadmin clone the vm to another vm, I had to change the configuration for WebSphere and DB2.

    NEXT TIME, I will just build the test environment from scratch. It can take a little bit more time, but making all the changes was not easy. I am not a websphere admin nor db2 admin, so that was part of the challenge. I had to add an /etc/hosts entry on the new VM so that the old VM host name pointed to the new IP.

    Here are some links that I found useful for WebSphere and DB2:
