tech tip - PM 2.0 - Disaster/Recovery setup and procedure 

10-16-2014 11:24 AM

This document details the steps required to be prepared for a disaster/recovery scenario in PM.

Some context for the outlined procedure:

  • IP addresses and hostnames are unique in the two environments (primary and secondary)
  • Not designed for individual component failures – this is for a complete datacenter failure scenario
  • Process is not automated (but can be scripted to customer needs)


Your feedback is appreciated so please post any comments in this thread.

Dear Kishan Silva Ratnayake :

        Why it always tell me that it can't find the node. When I run the ./vbr.py --config-file cluster copy.ini --task copycluster

Can you help to solve this issue ?


the failure issue is:

node dbNode is not found in cluster

copycluster failed!

HI Steve,

just to clarify - the timeframe wasn't viewable on IE?


12-11-2014 05:02 AM

Hi Peter Bennett and hi ratki01,


I also found the solution for the timeframe problem... just took chrome and now it's visible...


Thanks and best regards,

Hi SteveWeinert

Glad to hear that it was useful,

I will defer response to your questions to ratki01 as the author of the thread - I was only involved from moderation standpoint.

Hi Kishan Silva Ratnayake@ and Peter Bennett@,


thanks for providing us this paper... it helped me to setup a Desaster Recovery IM (2.3.4) environment. But I have a small Problem. When I login to the Backup Perf Center the Timeframe Bar where I can chosse e.g. the last4 Hours is missing ...


And another question is how can I restart the Data Aggregator remotely e.g.

ssh user@host "/etc/init.d/dadaemon start"  won't work  but stopping it this way did work!


Do you have any idea?
