XI 3.0 Migration to a new Data Center


Hi All,

We are currently migrating the XI 3.0 system from an existing Data center to our data center. Before GO-LIVE, we are conducting a DRY RUN on our New XI 3.0 Production system.

The challenge we are facing here is how the communication channels can be deactivated before or as soon as the system is up for dry run?

Client has asked to carry out the dry run without impacting the current production files. Now, when our XI 3.0 Production system is started, it would automatically start all communication channels which means our XI 3.0 Production system will try to establish connections with Vendor systems(Internal and Data Center Systems) before we manually shut them down.

In such a situation, there is a very high possibility that some production files may be fetched into NEW SERVER before the communication channels are shut down manually.

If such a thing would occur, it may impact the current Production Environment (we are assuming, the impact would be severe, hence it’s a high RISK factor task).

Kindly suggest.
