Migrate the HA data
We may need to migrate the current HA to another HA in a different Data Center at times; this article will show you how to do so.
  1. 1.
    Use SSH client connect to current HA master node, perform the command to ensure you are in the master node
    pcs status
  2. 2.
    On the master node, perform the below commands to stop it and pack the data
    pcs resource disable pbx
    cd /var/lib/pbx/
    tar cvfp data.tar.gz portsip/
  3. 3.
    Now will need to copy the data.tar.gz to the /root folder of new HA master node.
  4. 4.
    Start HA in current HA. (this step is unnecessary if no need to run the current HA)
    pcs resource enable pbx && pcs resource cleanup
  5. 5.
    Now in new HA master node, perform the below commands
    pcs resource disable pbx
    cd /var/lib/pbx/
    rm -rf portsip/
    tar zxf /root/data.tar.gz
    docker start pbx
  6. 6.
    The above steps will take a bit long time, use the below command to ensure the PBX is started
    docker logs pbx
  7. 7.
    if you don't want to config store the data to AWS S3, skip steps 7, 8, and 9. Perform the below command if the PBX is successfully started
    docker stop pbx
  8. 8.
    Configure the AWS S3
  9. 9.
    Perform the command to start the HA:
pcs resource enable pbx && pcs resource cleanup
10. Now run the PBX setup wizard again to configure the PBX
