Copying External Data Feeder for NFO Configuration

This section describes how to copy External Data Feeder for NFO configuration from machine A to B. We assume that External Data Feeder for NFO is already installed and configured on machine A. External Data Feeder for NFO stores all configuration in the installation directory and in the NFO data base, so it can be simply copied from machine A to B.

Procedure

Use the following steps to do this on Linux:

On machine A:

  1. Stop External Data Feeder for NFO service (see Working with External Data Feeder for NFO Service below)

  2. Create copy of installation: tar -czf NFO-updater_copy.tar.gz /opt/nfi-updater

  3. Start External Data Feeder for NFO service (see Working with External Data Feeder for NFO Service below)

  4. Copy NFO-updater_copy.tar.gz to B.

On machine B:

  1. Install same version of External Data Feeder for NFO as on A. Don’t configure External Data Feeder for NFO.

  2. Stop External Data Feeder for NFO service (see Working with External Data Feeder for NFO Service below)

  3. Remove all External Data Feeder for NFO files: rm -rf /opt/nfi-updater

  4. Extract copy of External Data Feeder for NFO: tar –xzf nfo-updater_copy.tar.gz /opt/

  5. If External Data Feeder for NFO on B should use different client certificate or tomcat has different certificate, reconfigure .updater_keystore or .updater_truststore respectively.

  6. If NFO and External Data Feeder for NFO are installed on different machines, set uri property in the /opt/nfi‑updater/conf/updater.properties file.

  7. Start External Data Feeder for NFO service (see Working with External Data Feeder for NFO Service below)

  8. Check that External Data Feeder for NFO 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).
