Moving Data Centre

                   Due to a planned closure of a data centre we are having to relocate one of our Ironport C370 Servers.  This is one of two servers within a cluster.  The second server is within a different data centre and therefore not affected.  The move will obviously require new IP addresses.  Does anyone have a planned procedure or advice on how to move the server without causing any outage?

I am also concerned about getting a poor Senderbase score on the new IP address.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

Hey Jonathan,

Is your cluster set up using hostnames or IPs?

If its hostnames, you should be able to do the following (basically sort of like doing an upgrade):

clusterconfig disconnect machinename

Move it to new data center

Change IP's

Update Firewalls/DNS A records

Flush DNS caches on your other ESA boxes

custerconfig reconnect

If you have the cluster configured using IPs you may have to remove the box from the cluster and then re-add it...

Hope that helps,

That's great Ken, thank you for your time.  I do believe we are set up using hostnames.

Do you have any advice on the Senderbase scoring?
