    Using the steps in the following KB What are the steps to implement failover and High - CA Knowledge I would think you can do it. 

    The thought process here would be basically setting up the second MoM as if it would be a secondary and copying all the files needed. You may not be able to copy them based on the OS change depending on what is in those directories.

    But once done just disable the Primary and set up the Secondary to be the primary.

     

     

    Anyone else have any thoughts as to if this would work?

    Hi Charles_Nack ,

    Dear Ritu:

        There is an effort underway to create a migration section in the documentation. For an EM you would need to do at least this:

    Backup and bring the following to the new OS as appropriate:

    • Point to new Database/Collectors 
    • Migrate SmartStor Data 
    • Transfer Configuration Files 
    • Transfer Management Modules/Calculators 

    Thanks

    Hi Rita,

    You need to install the MOM (Enterprise Manager) on Linux using the APM Enterprise Manager installer for Linux.

    Before you start the new MOM you should make the changes/copy over the files listed above by Hal.

    You also need to edit your agent profiles to point to the new MOM hostname/IP Address.

     

    Hope that helps

     

    Regards,

     

    Lynn

    Hi Hallett_German

    I wanted to know which files we cant move from windows to linux as the linux system doesnt support file formats of windows.

     

    Thanks
