Add Node

Hi Expert,

We have a requirement that need to build up BI4.1 SP3 in a seprate system. We cloned whole BI system from original prod (as A) to a new host, domain BI system B. We have cloned CMC from prod A to prod B with a different datasource. I need to config new system B, I tried to add a new SIA node on system B. When i add the new SIA node, with a same cluster key as prod A, but with CMS pointing to a different datasoure B, and also change cluster host name to the current host B. The new SIA node will appear on the BI prod A. When I logg on to the new prod B CMC, it doesnt have any services again the newly created SIA B. Could anyone sugguest why it is happening this way?

Thanks, Youqin

      Ok. Thanks very much. Now we decided to install BI from scratch. but it's good to know that in our case it needs to reintall BI again, and then do the configuration.

      Thanks for the help.

    Hi Youqin,

    What was the procedure followed to clone A to B?

    Was the original SIA on B recreated on new DB?

    And changed the clustername as well?

    Have a look at: 1275068 - Backup and restore of filestore and CMS database of a BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 3.x/BI 4.0/BI 4.1 system

    This is the complete process to restore an environment from a backup.

      Hi Sid,

      Actually we've cloned BI hosted VM A to another VM B, the other VM has different hostname, IP, and domain.

      I've refered note 1275068, and deleted parentid as the note. when I create a new node in the VM B(the new BI), the newly create node also appears on the original VM A BI.

      I changed new node clustername, point to new database.

      The new node doesnt contain any services.

      Thanks,

      Youqin

    Hi Youqin,

    1. What was the purpose of cloning in your case or was it cloned to avoid time consumed in setting up new system?

    ---> If the cloned system B is meant to be used for same purpose as System A then you could be benefit by creating "Replication list" & Fedration features available in BO system.

    2. Is the cloned system in the same LAN or are they supposed to be in the same LAN?

    I guess by cloned CMC you meant you had cloned BO System database/CMS repository?

      Thanks again.
