You can migrate your on-premises IBM i system to Skytap.
Install the IBM i File System Agent on the Linux server that is used as the access node.
The Linux server can be a MediaAgent on the same network as the IBM i system.
Optional: Create a plan for migration.
To verify the DR pre-requisites for IBM i, see Verify the DR pre-requisites for IBM i.
Ask the IBM i system administrator to run the IBM i Disk Space Report.
Create and deploy a MediaAgent (with sufficient storage) on Skytap.
Create a deduplicated storage pool on the Skytap MediaAgent.
Create a secondary copy for the non-DR backup subclients pointing to the Skytap storage pool.
The auxiliary copy subclient performs a backup to the Skytap MediaAgent.
Create two IBM i virtual machines in Skytap (one will be used as an NIS server, and the other as a restore destination).
Configure the Skytap NIS IBM i virtual machine as an IBM i client.
Configure the Skytap IBM i virtual machine as an IBM i client.
Restore the DR Backup ISO to the NIS IBM i virtual machine .
The 1-Touch restore job is suspended at this point.
Complete the following steps by following the Skytap documentation:
After the operating system is recovered, restore the remaining data from the ISO images, and then configure TCP/IP.
For more information, see Recover system data and Commvault libraries from the DR Backup.
Resume the 1-Touch restore job to restore the data.
Optional: Deconfigure the NIS IBM i virtual machine in Commvault.
Optional: Decommission the NIS IBM i virtual machine in Skytap.
