Move master/media/TL to different rack

Level 5

Hi All,

We need to Move master/3 media servers/TL which is connected to master to a different rack. Below points i need to confirm for this activity:

1. DC team will do this activity(un-cable master/media/TL from old and re-cable to new rack) .Is there any other task they have to perform or keep in mind?

2. Do we need to involve vendor as well in this activity?

3. Is there any order in which we have to move these devices?

4. From NBU perspective we need to keep a record for current network configuration in case of any issue after movement and shut down NBU services on master and all media servers. Is there anything else?

Any other things do we need to keep in mind while doing this activity?






Level 6

I would say than point 4 should be the first point.

And of course have fallback plan.

You can move the media servers one at the time and make sure the connections are ok if you have the time.

In case of a "big-bang" move, I would startup the master server first as this needed for the media servers to check connectity.

Remember to flush dns and netbackup host cache after the move if the ip addresses changes

The standard questions: Have you checked: 1) What has changed. 2) The manual 3) If there are any tech notes or VOX posts regarding the issue
