Unanswered: Script to configuring a server and generate Databases
I have a server and several databases defined in ASE 12.5.
I'd like to copy the exact server configuration parameters and databases to a new server.
Is there a way to do that so all of my disk devices, cache devices, network packet size, etc etc etc get created, assigned, and finalized all with just pressing a button or running some sort of script?
Re: Script to configuring a server and generate Databases
Are you using raw devices or file system ?
Case of file system with the same location:
Install binaries in the new server
copy devices in your new server
copy RUN file, cfg file, interfaces file
Case of file system in other locations:
edit RUN file to point to the correct master device
edit CFG file to pass "allow updates" to true
start ASE with only recovery master (flag -T 3608)
update sysdevices.phyname to reflect the correct devices
shutdown and restart without flag -T 3608
Case of raw devices
Rebuild the server using srvbuildres
Create the raw devices using disk init
if version > 126.96.36.199
Transfer the server using the migration tool (till v.188.8.131.52)
transfer syslogins, syssrvroles, sysloginroles, sysservers,
sysremotelogins from source to target ASE.master using bcp
