We've all come across it.nbsp; There comes a time in an admins life when you have to move a server instance from one piece of hardware to another piece of hardware.nbsp; Usually it's an EOL situation, hardware upgrade or even for DR testing purposes.nbsp; Moving Domino is usually an extremely easy task.nbsp; Shut down Domino on the old server, install the application on the new server to match your old server, copy/paste, rename servers, reboot, smoke cigar.nbsp; But when another Domino based add-on into gets in the mix, things could get a little tricky.nbsp; Or at least, a heightened paranoid level.nbsp; But as I found today, moving Traveler to a new server because the old one was EOL, was really pretty straight forward and simple.nbsp; And didn't require the users to have to do anything.nbsp; Here's my steps:nbsp; (Mind you, YOUR mileage may vary so test or have a good backup on hand, just in case.)br /1.nbsp; Shut down old Domino server, not the hardware.br /2.nbsp; Copy/paste all Domino .nsf's from old server to new server.br /3.nbsp; Copy over the servers .id and .ini br /4.nbsp; Don't forget the .kyr and .sth files too!br /5.nbsp; On the old server, access the folder LotusDominoDatatravelerbr /6.nbsp; Copy all of the folders that exist there.br /7.nbsp; Paste the folders to the new server under the same folder structure.br /8.nbsp; Finish renaming and readdressing the servers as needed.br /9.nbsp; Don't forget to disable the Domino service on the old server before you reboot!br /10.nbsp; Reboot servers and launch Domino on the new server.br /That's it.br /Once the server came back online, I did a sync with my iPod touch and whamo-o!nbsp; Instant sync.br /Earlier in the week, I had opened a ticket with Lotus support, and they had informed me that move to a new server was not a problem, but the users may have to resync all their data and that could take a while.nbsp; That's when I got to thinking and found that all of the current sync data exists in the above folder structure.nbsp; Copying those folders to the new server made the first sync to the server appear like it hadn't missed a beat.nbsp; I love it when Lotus makes things nice and simple.nbsp; Time for that cigar.div class="blogger-post-footer"img width='1' height='1' src='https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/5685203-6330562409650138340?l=blog.macian.net' alt='' //div
Andy's Guide to.......
Thu, Jan 2nd 2014 8:45p Andy Donaldson Okay, I have been a bit of a slacker this year. I haven't gotten around to my annual "Andy's Guide to Connect-o-sphere" post. So, until I do, here are the links to years past! Enjoy! [read] Keywords: lotusphere
Wed, Dec 4th 2013 7:36a Andy Donaldson So it's that time of the year again when all the good little Domino Admins and Developers get all starry eyed and anxious with the anticipation of going to Lotuspher...I mean Connect. One of the fun things that goes on at the event is the "Wednesday night party" at one of the local Orlando theme parks. For me, that's always something I look forward to. Not much of a thrill ride person myself, but enjoy the themes of the parks. In years past, it was a closely guarded secret on which park [read] Keywords: domino
The 8.1 Upgrade Blues
Fri, Oct 18th 2013 9:10a Andy Donaldson If you hadn't heard yesterday, Microsoft officially released their latest operating system, Windows 8.1, to the populace. With much excitement to officially get a "Start" button back, I raced off to the interwebs to try and download the software. Problem was, I had downloaded and installed the Windows 8.1 preview on my personal laptop. That was a problem. Well, not really a problem, but a pain. You see, to get the latest version I had to go through a refresh process which basically took [read] Keywords: applications
The curious case of the Trash folder design
Mon, Sep 16th 2013 8:25a Andy Donaldson I know. It's been a while and this post has nothing to do with photography...until I mentioned it just now. But I wanted to write this one out before I forget. Had a user call this morning saying that they had created a folder in their mail file and it took the design of a Trash folder. So when the user tried to drag and drop a message out of that folder, they go a message: "You cannot drag and drop out of Trash with Soft Deletes enabled. Please use Restore instead." Okay, this was a new [read] Keywords: admin
