Moving, Yes — Volumes to Another 3000
March 23, 2018
By John Burke
Here is a shortened version of the revised checklist for moving user volumes physically from one system to another without a RESTORE
- Get the new system up and running, even if it only has one disk drive
(if you've purchased additional new drives, do not configure them with VOLUTIL yet)
- Analyze and document the configuration on the old system, making any necessary configuration changes on the new system and creating an SLT for the new system;
- Backup and verify the system volume set and the user volumes separately (be sure to use the DIRECTORY option on all your STOREs);
- VSCLOSE all the user volume sets on the old machine;
- Move all the peripherals over to the new machine. On a START NORECOVERY, the user volumes should mount. The drives that were on the system volume set on the old system and any new drives added should now be configured in using VOLUTIL;
- RESTORE the system volume set:
RESTORE *T;@[email protected]@;KEEP;OLDDATE;
- RENAME the following three files if they exist to something else:
COMMAND.PUB.SYS (udc configuration)
- RESTORE the above three files from your tape with the DEV=1 option.
The OS requires that some files, for example SYSSTART, be on LDEV 1;
- RUN NMMGR against NMCONFIG.PUB.SYS, then using NMMGR, change the path for the LANIC, if necessary, and make any other necessary NMMGR configuration changes.
- Validate NETXPORT and DTS/LINK, which should automatically cross validate with SYSGEN.
- START NORECOVERY
