Migrating the Avi Code Databases RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a setup where there is SCOM 200 r2 and AviCode 5.6 installed.

    We need to migrate the databases for AviCode. Please let me know the high level steps to complete this.

    This is what I have come up with,

    - Migrate the SQL databases.

    - In the AviCode setup utility, change the database server name and point it to the new sql server.

    Please let me know if this is enough or do we need to make any changes at the SCOM end ?

    Thanks,

    Dhanraj

  • Hi Dhanraj,

    Before migrating SEViewer DB stop Intercept Services on all the Intercept Agents targeted to that SEViewer instance. Start those services when the migration is done.

    If you don't change SEViewer app location, - so you are only going to migrate DB, - your steps will be enough.

    If you change SEViewer location, there are two steps more:

    1. Target all the Intercept Agents to new SELog address (this is done within Intercept Management Console).

    2. Update SEViewer location in SCOM. Please, read below how to do that.

    To change the automatically assigned SEViewer address for a host you’ll need to:-      

    1. "Change scope…" to the "Windows Computer" on the "Rules" tab
    2. Override "Enable enterprise mode" rule – then you can choose appropriate group in "For a group" menu or you can choose separate computer in "For a specific object of class: Windows Computer" menu.

      3. Choose appropriate group or a computer to apply new settings (groups menu or a computers menu will appear depending on the previous selection).

    4. Set up appropriate "Override Value" in SEViewer Location (Domain/NetBIOS name depending on your network settings):

    5. Do not use "Default management pack" as destination management pack to avoid possible inconsistencies – choose/create another one (e.g. "AVIcode… Overrides");

    6. Apply the changes.

    7.  Run task "Upgrade Enterprise Agent" on the corresponding "Enterprise .NET Monitoring Agent" object.

    These steps will apply new SEViewer location for the chosen host(s).
