Restoring Vertica to a cluster with different IPs
My customer is trying to do the following.
They are currently on 7.2.3. They are in the early stages of upgrading to 8.x.
They are trying to use AWS as a DR site for their on-prem Vertica cluster. They have provisioned a similarly sized cluster on AWS. To save costs, they would like to keep the AWS cluster down until they need the DR capability.
Since, they are unable to backup to S3 directly, they have been running backup to a filesystem and then using AWS “sync” to move the data onto the cloud.
Once the data is in S3, their DR process would need to restore the backup from S3 to the newly started Vertica Cluster in AWS.
Is there a way to restore the vertica backup to a database with different IPs? I know that it is possible to edit the catalog manually and make these changes. Would the following command work with VBR and the restore?
admintools -t re_ip -f mapfile
Does anyone have the process for editing the IPs documented?
also, does anyone else see any other issues with this process?
