How best to upgrade eFa to new server OS version

Post by VAXman65 » 30 Nov 2021 00:53

My current eFa installation is running v4.0.4-26 on CentOS 7.9. My plan is to replace this server instance with a new one running Rocky Linux v8.5. In principle, I would build the new server instance with Rocky Linux v8.5, install the eFa software on it, then migrate across all the settings and data from the existing system running CentOS v7.9.

I did see the Wiki doc for https://wiki.efa-project.org/doku.php?i ... m_v3_to_v4 which kinda-sorrta is what I want to do, except that the starting point is a v4 system not a v3 system. Given that difference, should that procedure work for carrying out my migration to a new server instance with the new OS but same eFa version?

The steps are roughly the same here. This would make for a good wiki article on how to migrate from one instance to another.
