Migrating the Analytics Engine Index Directory

The AnalyticsEngineDirectoryMove workflow is a predefined workflow that allows you to migrate index data to a different location on the same Analytics Engine, or to a new Analytics Engine.

Warning: If you migrate the index data to a different Analytics Engine, ensure that you have configured the destination Analytics Engine with the same roles as the source Analytics Engine. Also, ensure there is no existing index data in the destination location as this operation will overwrite any existing data in the destination location.

Before You Begin

  • You must have deployed Workflow in your CommCell environment. For more information, see Workflow.
  • Deploy the AnlayticsIndexDirectoryMove workflow on the Workflow Engine you want to use. For instructions, see Deploying a Workflow.
  • If you want to migrate data to a different Analytics Engine, configure the new Analytics Engine with the same roles as the existing Analytics Engine.
  • Ensure there is no existing data in the location you want to use as the new index directory on the destination Analytics Engine.
  • Ensure there is enough space available on the destination Analytics Engine for the data you want to migrate.

Procedure

  1. Stop the Analytics service on the source and destination Analytics Engines. For more information, see Controlling Services on Windows.
  2. From the CommCell Browser, click to Workflows.
  3. Right-click AnalyticsIndexDirectoryMove, and then click All Tasks > Execute.
  4. Click Run Workflow, select the Workflow Engine you want to use, and then click OK.
  5. Select the source and destination Analytics Engines as follows:
    • Click Source Analytics Engine and select the client with the data you want to migrate.
    • Click Destination Analytics Engine and select the client where you want to send the data.

    Note: To move the data to a different location on the same client, select the same client as both the source and destination Analytics Engine. Then in Destination Index Directory, enter the full path to the destination index directory on the Analytics Engine.

  6. In the AnalyticsIndexDirectoryMove Options dialog box, click OK.
  7. When the workflow operation is complete, restart the Analytics service on the source and destination Analytics Engines.

    Tip: You can track the progress of the workflow job from the Job Controller.
