I have two standalone CUC 8.6 clusters in two locations . Now I want to consolidate them into a single cluster possibly running the same version (8.6) and restore the data from the servers in the existing servers using COBRA. So I am trying to figure out what is the best way to do it. Some specific questions are:
1. Can I keep one of the existing clusters with more users/mailboxes as it is and install a new subscriber for the other side of the WAN link? And of course restore the CUC database using COBRA. Or it is better to build a new cluster with new CUC installation and restore the database from both clusters?
2. I am also planning to upgrade the CUC version from existing 8.6 to 9.1 so should I perform the upgrade before or after the CUC cluster consolidation?
Appreciate your response Chris. It is exactly what I needed to know. One more thing, since I will be installing the subscriber server at the other side of the WAN link, where should I restore the database, in the cluster where publisher resides or the subscriber itself? or it doesnot matter?
Are you getting this error “Installer User Interface Mode Not Supported. The installer cannot run in this UI mode. To specify the interface mode, use the -i command-line option, followed by the UI mode identifier. The value UI mode identifiers...
The below trick might come handy when you have to add a new node to a cluster but you don't have or is unsure of the security password for the publisher. This procedure has been around for ages.
1) Login into the CLI of the Publisher.
