CA team ,
Need your assistance to check a requirement whether it is possible to Migrate a fully functional CA Directory service running on a dedicated drive e.g. /opt to get migrated to any other drive on the same VM ?
There are different ways we could move the data between two parallel running DSA's. But I guess that is not what you are after.
It seems your ask is to move the entire DSA folder from /opt to a different directory on the same VM.
Just by thinking about it, I think the answer is "YES". I have not tested this, but you can surely test this in a lower non prod / demo env. Things to keep in mind...
May I also ask is your requirement to keep the DSA fully functional during the move / migrate ? In that case you'd fall in the bracket of running two DSA's in parallel. DSA-1 under /opt with the fully loaded data. You'll setup a new OS User (Why a new OS User, because you'll be spinning up a new dxagent + dxserver) and install / configure new DSA-2 in a different path on the same VM. Then using one of the different approach of copying data across DSA's, you'd copy the data. Then start DSA-2 as fully functional.
Thanks Denish for your response , the objective here is not to break the
DSA functionality after the Directory structure migration . So following
the approach to stop the agent and dsa before stepping into the Movement is
quite a good idea .
Another question could be raised here - in case of two Directory server
infra , if one VM is undergoing this DS Directory movement activity will
that impact the 2nd Directory server which has all the same DSAs available
and running in state .
What would be the extra caution to be maintained at the 2nd Directory
