Transferring RRD files
When you transfer RRD files as part of an RTM migration, these steps make sure that you set the correct permissions on the new server.
- Change the apache and wwwrun service accounts to have a shell.
- Create and replicate an ssh key and authorized keys files.
- Switch to the appropriate service account.
- Run rsync to synchronize the files as the service account.
Note: If you use boost, you must flush your cache before you push the files to the new server. To flush boost, run the following command:
cd /opt/IBM/cacti/plugins/boost php -q poller_boost.php -force
Run the following rsync command. (Paths cannot contain symbolic links.)
cd /opt/IBM/cacti rsync -rp rra newserver:/opt/IBM/cacti
