Combining devices from one AC2 server to another

Right now we have two separate servers. What's the best way to get all the devices from one to the other?

 

Can we set the server inform IP to be the new IP, then stop and start monitoring on all the devices we want to start talking to the new server?

 

Or would it be better to just stop monitoring, then discover all the IPs in the new server? I suppose it would be easy enough to get a list of IP addresses of the devices and run a discover on the IP list.

Re: Combining devices from one AC2 server to another

heartbeats from undiscovered devices will be dropped, so your first suggestion won't work.

your 2nd approach is good.
stop monitoring on old server. (keep database for worst case)
Discover on new server and start monitoring.

how many devices you wan't to add to new server and how many are already monitored?

Re: Combining devices from one AC2 server to another

We'll be adding about 500 to a server with 4500 existing. Only complaint with our system so far is how long it takes for the Java Desktop Client to start up--and the web UI. They both seem to download an excessive amount of data when first connecting. Otherwise things run very smooth.

@elmorekevin

Not 'much' devices compared to what you already have there.
Client startup time will probably decreased in next releases of AC2.1.
