Copying External Data Feeder for NFO (EDFN) Configuration

This section is relevant in scenarios where EDFN is installed on a different machine from NFO. It describes how to copy EDFN configuration from machine A to B. We assume that EDFN is already installed and configured on machine A. EDFN stores all configuration in the installation directory and in the NFO data base, so it can be simply copied from machine A to B.


Use the following steps to do this on Linux:

On machine A:

  1. Stop EDFN service (see Working with External Data Feeder for NFO Service)
  2. Create copy of installation:
    tar -czf NFO-updater_copy.tar.gz /opt/nfi-updater
  3. Start EDFN service
  4. Copy NFO-updater_copy.tar.gz to B.

On machine B:

  1. Install same version of EDFN as on A. Don’t configure EDFN.
  2. Stop EDFN service
  3. Remove all EDFN files:
    rm -rf /opt/nfi-updater
  4. Extract copy of EDFN:
    tar -xzf nfo-updater_copy.tar.gz -C /
  5. If EDFN on B should use different client certificate or tomcat has different certificate, reconfigure .updater_keystore or .updater_truststore respectively.
  6. Set uri property in the /opt/nfi-updater/conf/ file.
  7. Start EDFN service
  8. Check that EDFN has been started (see Status -> History panel in the GUI, logs should contain line like INFO[updater] Updater<updaterUID> (x.x.x.x.x) connected).
