Configure your disk as NAS storage so that you can use it for both primary and secondary storages
in CS.

Thanks for the info.  So how does one configure , My Book Live disk to be used as primary/secondary
storage in CS 4.1 or 4.2/3?

Hi Giri,

CS 4.1 does not support smfs for primary storage. So you can't add your external disk in your
setup.

Subject: Re: How to change primary storage

I have a new install of CS 4.1 on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.  I currently dont have any vm's or applications
or volumes configured or running on the CS 4.1. Basically a freshly installed Ubuntu kernel
and CS 4.1.


The storage setup on the Ubuntu host pc is

XXX.XXX.1.5:/export/primary on /mnt/primary1

XXX.XXX.1.5:/export/secondary on /mnt/secondary

The external disk (My Book Live disk) is configured as 

XXX.XXX.1.20:/nfs/Public/primary on /mnt/primary

    This external disk is configured in Linux host using : apt-get install smbfs. The external
disk is mounting and is read/write-able in the Linux host.

Now, I want to add the external disk (XXX.XXX.1.20) as the primary storage and remove the
(local hdd) primary storage XXX.XXX.1.5:/export/primary.

 So, if I just add the XXX.XXX.1.20  as the primary storage in CS, and remove 1.5:/export/primary
will do? Or some other procedure?


Please take note that I have used only smfs, for mounting.


Regards,

Manually changing the db can help you but I prefer These steps ,  can be done  without any
downtime .

1-add http://XXX.XXX.1.20 with /export/dd
2- migrate volumes from http://XXX.XXX.1.5 to http://XXX.XXX.1.20 3-put http://XXX.XXX.1.5
to maintains mode
4- remove http://XXX.XXX.1.5.

thanks

You can probably change the host_address field of the storage_pool table to change the IP
address of your primary storage.

You will probably want to make sure you don't have any (non-deleted) volumes on the storage
pool (primary storage) in question, though.

As you likely have seen, the volumes table is linked to the storage_pool table via the storage_pool.id
and volumes.pool_id fields.

It might be easier for you to create new primary storage and migrate your volumes on the old
primary storage to the new primary storage.
