Power migrate from ssa to san


Do you have procedures to migrate ssa disks to san disk?

I don't have testing environment and I want my file system be migrated one at a time. I want it to be fast, I have only 15-20 hours to do it on every sunday 1PM till monday 7am. My largest file system is about 150G.

The AIX is 4.3.3 maintenance level 9.

Thanks in advance,

RS6000 SSA Raid question

Hi Can I add disks on the fly to extend the capacity of an existing RAID 5 volume? It's created on a 4P Advanced SSA Raid Adapter. I need to extend a volume group, so I figured it would be easiest to extend the "physical disk" which is a RAID5 volume. Thanks. (1 Reply)

dtc-xen_migrate - migrate a VPS to another Xen server SYNOPSIS
dtc-xen_migrate This shell script is a part of the dtc-xen package that is to be used by the dtc panel to manage a Xen VPS server. Note that you need rsync in both the source and the destination dom0. This script is used to move the content of a Xen virtual machine (VM) managed with dtc-xen to another Xen server of the same type. The VM destination will first be prepared, then the local VM will be shut down, then it's content will be transfered over using rsync. Note that this is NOT a live migration, and down time of approximatively the time needed for the rsync will occure. PARAMETERS
LOCAL_VPS_ID The DTC-Xen id of the VM, from 00 to 99. DESTINATION_HOSTNAME Destination Xen server hostname to migrate to. DEST_VPS_ID Destination DTC-Xen id of the VM, from 00 to 99. EXAMPLE
dtc-xen_migrate 19 alpha.example.com 21 This will migrate the content of xen19 on the local machine to the destination server alpha.example.com using xen21 as VM name. SEE ALSO
