    Snapshot/Audit Changes for Datacenter Move

    Bill Robinson

      IHAC that is moving data centers. They have expressed the desire to take a baseline of each box, shut it down, move it to the new facility, power it up and verify that nothing has changed on the box during the move.


      What I've thought of so far is to use some blcli magic (maybe even jython!) and script up creating snapshot jobs (based on component templates) for all the systems. then the customer can run the snapshot, shutdown and move the box. then, when the box is powered back up, re-run the snapshot. the 2nd snapshot should contain just the delta between the two.


      is it possible to export that delta somehow or include the delta as a report?


      or has anyone run into a similar situation - basically needing to "snapshot" the whole system?
