How to migrate a server with VMmanager to a VM in an HA cluster?

ISPSystem

Moving the platform to an HA cluster



You can migrate a server with VMmanager to a virtual machine (VM) in a high availability cluster. This will allow the platform to self-recover after failures.

Note

In the current version, migrating a server to a cluster with the IP fabric configuration type is not supported.

Migration scheme


Explanation of the scheme:

VM1 — source server or virtual machine with VMmanager

VM2 — virtual machine for platform migration

Cluster 1 — HA cluster created in VM1

Node 1, Node 2, Node 3 — physical servers, Cluster 1 nodes

VM — virtual machines in Cluster 1

Sequence of migration

  1. Set up a high availability cluster in VM1. Read more in Configuring high availability.
  2. Create a VM for migration (VM2) in the HA cluster: Virtual machines → Create a VM. VM2 must meet the system requirements to install the platform. Read more in Server requirements.
  3. Move VMmanager from VM1 to VM2 following the steps described in How to move VMmanager to a new server?

Changing the VM configuration

To change the configuration of a VM with a platform (for example, to allocate more resources to the VM):

  1. Create a VM with the required configuration in the HA cluster.
  2. Move VMmanager to the created VM following the steps described in How to move VMmanager to a new server?
