DB migration Challanges


Hi All

Dynatrace Server and collectors ,DB all are migrated (VM cloned to new Physical location with new server name in April month.
Due to agent connectivity issue we could not start using the new set up Monitoring happening with the old set up only.
Planning to make changes in agent to point to the new collector on July 22nd.

1. Is it possible to synchronize the April, May ,June, July month data to the new DB on that day.

2.In case if we again migrate the DB freshly, we have a challenge of missing one day data due to the below scenario.
Agent restart can happen after collector name change on July 22nd late night.
DB migration can happen on July 24 th business hours . We are not able to do agents migration and DB migration on the same day.
Is there anyway we can retrieve that one day data (stored in new DB on July23rd).

Expecting the quick response as we have to plan here.

Thanks & regards

Hi Karthik,

there's a beta feature in 6.5 and 7.0 which allows you to selectively migrate data for specific system profiles.

I suggest you do a fresh database migration on or around July 22nd, and once all the agents are connected to the new server, start the migration of the missing data.

Please open a support ticket to get the documentation for the migration tool, it's not yet released officially. Best regards,


I've used the beta features Peter mentioned already at a client to consolidate server instances, it worked flawlessly for us.
