Read our docs This article explains how to move dbvserver to a new host, with all the existing configurations.

Problem Statement

Move dbvserver to new host.

Applicable Error Code


Affected Versions

Dbvisit Standby Version 8.0,9.0 and 10.0

Affected Platforms

Platform Independent.


 Below are the steps to move the Dbvserver to a new host. 

 For this example i am moving the Dbvserver from host kiwi704 to kiwi702. The new host which you are moving to, should be able to recognise and ping the primary and standby hosts , so that the dbvagents can recognise them as soon as you start the dbvserver in the new host.
Steps Performed

1. Stop the dbvserver in old host kiwi704. 

[oracle@kiwi704 /usr/dbvisit/dbvserver]$ ./dbvserver -d stop
dbvserver stops, pid: 1578

2. Install dbvserver in new host kiwi702.

3. Copy the dbvserver.db file from the old host to the new host in the location $DBVISIT_BASE/dbvserver/conf directory. (Take a backup of the existing file).

[oracle@kiwi702 /usr/dbvisit/dbvserver/conf]$ ls -lrt
total 68
-rw-r--r-- 1 oracle oinstall   324 Aug  9 12:39 dbvserver.conf
-rw-r--r-- 1 oracle oinstall 65536 Aug  9 12:39 dbvserver.db
[oracle@kiwi702 /usr/dbvisit/dbvserver/conf]$ mv dbvserver.db dbvserver.db.back
[oracle@kiwi702 /usr/dbvisit/dbvserver/conf]$ scp oracle@kiwi704:/usr/dbvisit/dbvserver/conf/dbvserver.db .
oracle@kiwi704's password:
dbvserver.db                                                                                                                                  100%  192KB 192.0KB/s   00:00

4. Start the dbvserver in the new host kiwi702.

[oracle@kiwi702 /usr/dbvisit/dbvserver]$ ./dbvserver -d start
[oracle@kiwi702 /usr/dbvisit/dbvserver]$ ./dbvserver -d status
dbvserver is running with pid: 2678
[oracle@kiwi702 /usr/dbvisit/dbvserver]$

5. Login to the browser and check if the configurations are seen and the agents are up and running.


You should be able to see all your tasks and the hosts and configurations. After checking the configurations, you can un-install the dbvserver in the old host.
