The SIOS Multi-Site Migrate feature is included in the SIOS Protection Suite for Linux Multi-Site Cluster product. This additional feature enables an administrator to migrate an existing SIOS Linux LifeKeeper environment to a Multi-Site Cluster Environment. The migration procedure allows selected shared file system’s resources to be safely migrated and replicated with minimum hierarchy downtime.
Following are a few important considerations when creating a Multi-Site resource from an existing file system:
- The Multi-Site migrate procedure will un-mount the file system during the creation process and remount it on a NETRAID device.
- Any applications that depend on this file system will need to be stopped during the create resource procedure. This action is handled by the Migrate procedure; no administration action is required.
- Hierarchies containing the following resource types cannot be migrated using the Multi-Site migration feature– NAS (scsi/netstorage), SDR (scsi/netraid) and Multi-Site Cluster resource (scsi/disrec).
