Move secondary Cloud Failover Appliance to remote site

As a precaution, save the Cloud Failover Appliance (CFA) configuration locally to your administration machine (SettingsConfigurationSave Configuration).

Please read the following instructions to become familiar with the steps before moving the CFA:

Change the IP address in SettingsNetworkingNetwork Adapters.

If necessary, change the routes in SettingsNetworkingRoutes.

If necessary, change the DNS settings in SettingsNetworkingDNS.

If necessary, change the Active Directory settings in SettingsNetworkingActive Directory.

Also check SettingsMonitoringSNMP to make sure it will work at remote site.

Shutdown the CFA in SettingsReboot/Shutdown.

Although not absolutely necessary, if the CFA might be subject to rough handling during the move—consider ejecting the drives (ground yourself first to avoid static), number the drives and ship/transport them separately from the chassis.

The drives must be put back in the proper order. See SettingsToolsRAID Configuration for proper numbering.

Once at the remote site, boot up the CFA. If the necessary settings were changed earlier, you will be able to access the CFA Management Console about 5-10 minutes after start.

If necessary, a monitor and keyboard can be connected to the CFA.

Changes can then be made to networking (and other settings) via “Quick Start” after the CFA is fully booted up.

Once on site when you can access the CFA Management Console, change the IP Address in ReplicationMode/Options on both the primary and secondary to match again, but do not click Clear. This will make it forget that it was ever talking to another CFA for replication and then seeding was all for naught.
