How to migrate Orient DB from TDM Portal to another server. Is it possible?
You could just install portal on one of the servers and access the portal from the other server through the URL by using the server name of the first server. This will make sure that both servers have access to the same information.
In theory it seems to be possible to migrate the Orient DB to another server, after migrating a couple of configuration files of the Portal do need to be alter to reflect the new OrientDB server. In C:\Program Files\CA\CA Test Data Manager Portal\conf you will need to alter the application.properties and catdmshredder.properties. Look for the graphdb section in the files.
OrientDB comes with its own interface which can be accessed on http://<HOSTNAME>:2480/studio/index.html using the user and password as given during installation of CA TDM Portal. This interface provides an export to JSON format which can than be imported by using the OrientDB command line console.
OrientDB Server can export the database in JSON format. Click the Export Database button to download a gzip compressed file containing the JSON file. You can re-import it by using OrientDB command line console.
Thanks Peter for your answer, your explanation was great. I would like also to know if this migration of the OrientDB will affect the future upgrades of the TDM Portal.
Thanks for your help.
Yes it will impact future upgrades, since the OrientDB installer is included in the CA TDM Portal installer.
May I ask why you want to move the OrientDB? Moving the db to another server will introduce a delay since the Portal needs to connect to another server.
Thanks for your answer. Our TDM platform is composed by two TDM servers that shares a common repository. we would like to replicate this same behavior for the TDM Portal. We noticed that the TDM Portal does not have the same information from one server to another server. CA explained to us that it could be possible to migrate the orient db, but nobody explained to us how this work could be performed.
