Requirements before migration
* Ensure you can connect to the Target Database from the CentreStack Server with the corresponding database management tool.
* Back up the CentreStack Server.
* Back up the current database.
* On Centrestack server, backup the registries:
The registries here contain the database connection information. In case you want to restore to the old connection, just restore the two registries.
* Avoid having any users writing to the CentreStack database during migration.
The database being used by the current CentreStack server can be found on the Cluster Control Panel >> Worker Nodes page.
In latest Centrestack, can also see the database information in the Cluster Dashboard.
From the CentreStack server, launch the browser and navigate to: http://localhost/management/migratedatabase.aspx
You should see the following screen:
Select the Target Database (For this example, MySQL is selected from the Database dropdown)
Fill out the Target Database Configuration screen with the Database server information, then select Migrate.
Note: The logging database can contain many records, elongating the migration time.
