we have a Customer who has a Managed Dynatrace Installation and they have to move their On-Premise machine (dynatrace included) to Datacenter (another country), of course other IP's, etc.
The question is. What relevant aspect must we handle about Dynatrace Migration. They are thinking about moving Filesystems (/opt/dynatrace, /var/dynatrace, Elastic, Cassandra and transactions). The thing is that we are not familiar with configuration changes requiered.
Is there any procedure for this kind of migrations?
Thanks in advance.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Is it possible to install new cluster in different DataCenter with communication between them? In such case new cluster will replicate data from the old one. You only will need to install new cluster as extra node of the old one. Then old can be disabled and closed.
Copying just the data will definitely not work. The best option is to create another cluster node (not the whole cluster) and get the data synchronized. This can be done without losing any data (no downtime).
Another option is to restore data on the other side from backup. However, depending on your network and deployment architecture you might need to reconfigure the agents so they will be able to connect.
I don't think any other method is supported.
We have published a "Cluster migration" topic in our help docs. Hope it helps.
