Export devices models to another Landscape

  • 1.  Export devices models to another Landscape

    Hello my friends,

     

    Is it possible to move all monitored devices from one landscape to another? I read something about Modeling gateway toolkit but I did not quite understand how to use it.

     

    For example, I have 25 devices monitored in Landscape (0xb1200000) topology Universe > Brazil > Site X and I would like to move these 25 devices to Landscape (0xa400000) > Universe > Brazil > Site X.

     

    okasi01 Can you help too? 

     

    Thanks,

    Heitor.

    Basic instructions would use the modeling gateway export from the 0xb1200000 landscape and specify the Site X container as the RootContainerToExport in the $SPECROOT/SS-Tools/.modelinggatewayresource.xml file. Then, take the resulting xml file over to the 0xa400000 landscape and use the modeling gateway to import the file. It will recreate the Universe > Brazil > Site X topology and create the devices inside Site X.

    Hi Heitor,

     

    Suppose you want to export the  "Site X" from landscape 0xb1200000.

     

    1. On the 0xb1200000 machine, change the file attribute of the $SPECROOT/SS-Tools/.modelinggatewayresource.xml file, from read-only to read-write.

     

    2. Edit the $SPECROOT/SS-Tools/.modelinggatewayresource.xml file.

     

    3. Update the line 297 (in my environment) to read as follows:

    <RootContainerToExport model_type=”Network” model_name=”Site X”/>

     

    4. On lines 283 and 284, change the value of export_global_collections and export_discovery_configs to false.

     

    export_global_collections = "false"

    export_discovery_configs = "false"

     

    5. Save your changes to the modelinggatewayresources.xml file.

     

    6. In a bash shell, navigate to the $SPECROOT/SS-Tools/ directory.

     

    7. To export the "Site X" to the Site_X_models.xml file, in a bash shell, enter the following command:

    ./modelinggateway -vnm <SpectroSERVER_hostname1> -e Site_X_models.xml

     

    You should see a message indicating that the topology was exported successfully.

     

    8. Copy the Site_X_models.xml file from SpectroSERVER_hostname1 (0xb1200000) to SpectroSERVER_hostname2 (0xa400000), in $SPECROOT/SS-Tools/ directory

     

    9. To import the "Site X" models in 0xa400000 landscape, enter the following command in the bash shell on the 0xa400000 landscape:

    ./modelinggateway -vnm <SpectroSERVER_hostname2> -i Site_X_models.xml

     

    Note: It might take several minutes for the import process to complete. The import process may finish with errors. You can see more detailed information about the import errors by opening the $SPECROOT/SS-Tools/Site_X_models.xml.log file.

     

    Thanks,

    Silvio

    Hi Silvio,

     

    Looks like this worked very well!! Exceeded my expectations. I'll still need to adjust few things but that's fine.

     

    Thank you very much!!
