As a precaution, save the CFA configuration locally to your administration machine via System > Setting > Configuration, Save Configuration.
Please read the following instructions to become familiar with the steps before moving the CFA:
Change IP Address via System > Settings > Networking.
If necessary, change Routes via System > Settings > Routes.
If necessary, change DNS settings via System > Settings > DNS.
If necessary, change Active Directory settings via System > Settings > Active Directory.
Also check System > Settings > Firewall and System > Settings > SNMP to make sure they will work at remote site.
Shutdown via System > Settings > Reboot, and then click 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 System > RAID 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 WebGUI 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 WebGUI, change the IP Address in Replication > Mode/Options on both the primary and secondary to match again, but do not click the “Clear” button.
“Clear” will make it forget that it was ever talking to another CFA for replication and then seeding was all for naught.
