We are planning to install UIM on azure platform, so wanted to have of what all risk, issue, assumptions, dependency would be there. If we migrate the collector hub in azure. Also what ports will we require to get open to receive the alerts and qos on premises hub.
Any leads will be appreciable.
If i understand correctly, you want to move your primary hub to azure and all regional/secondary hubs will stay on premise.
we have done such migration in past, it will be like a standard migration, you can create tunnels and queues to get the alarm/Qos data and ports used will be standard ports used by nimsoft.
Network bandwidth and I/O were the major issues we faced at that time. Depends on how much dataflow you have in your existing environment.
Thanks Hsehgal. How did you mange to move all CIs reporting in primary hub of on-premises server to azure platform. As I know I need to make change of robotip and hubname in every CIs robot.cfg file, is there any way which help to move CIs in less time possible.
Generally you can move the robots by just selecting the robot in IM ->right click-> mode to required hub.
Secondly you can try creating a robot_update package with new hub name and IP and deploy it on robots which should report to this new hub.
But i believe you may face network and communication issues if you try to report servers from on premise environment to hub hosted on Azure. I suggest to let all such robots report to a hub in your on premise environment and then pass on the alarm/qos data via tunnel&queues to the primary hub.
you can go to below tech article for more information on having a hub hosted in azure
Tech Tip: UIM - How can I deploy a remote/secondary hub in Azure?
Note: Please test this on few robots first before mass deployment to avoid any risk.
Any other suggestions or simpler solution guys?
Thanks Hsehgal its really helpful.
Your Welcome Shubhanker !
Have any of you setup WAF to publish Portal (wasp)?
I'm also going to migrate our central infrastructure to Azure soon.
Pollastre: could you please elaborate.. ump server will stay on premise? and what do you mean by publish portal.
In my environment, central,database and ump servers were migrated to Azure and we didn't setup any WAF..maybe required if it is available on public ip.. not sure..
Hsehgal Yes, all our main infrastructure will be installed from 0 in Azure (Main Hub, UMP, Database and some Relay Hubs). Then we need to publish UMP through a public IP to be available from remote locations via Internet.
