Public

To move the IMSS database:

  1. Go to /opt/trend/imss/script.
  2. Execute the following command:

    ./dbctl.sh stop

  3. Execute the command below to ensure that postgres is not running:

    # ps -ef | grep post*
    root 13644 9507 0 08:15 pts/0 00:00:00 grep post

     
    The output means that the postgre is not running.
  4. Go to the /var/ directory and execute the following:

    rsync -av /var/imss /<destination directory> (copy with preserving permissions would do as well)

     
    In the "/<destination directory>", the folder "/imss" will be placed below the directory specified in the field "/<destination directory>". Additionally, there is a free space after the /var/imss" and the "/<destination directory>".
  5. Do the following in the /var/ directory:
    1. Create a backup for IMSS in /var/ using the following:

      mv imss/ back-imss

    2. Create the symbolic link using the command below:

      ln -s /<destination directory>/imss ./imss

  6. Go to /opt/trend/imss/script.
  7. Execute "./dbctl.sh start".
  8. Check that the postgres is running by executing the following:

    # ps -ef | grep post*

    You should be able to see various processes running with postgres.

  9. Check that all the data are available within the GUI.
