Currently, we only have a guide for Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
1. In GCP, create an Ubuntu instance in the same subnet as your CloudM Migrate servers.
- Ubuntu 16.04+ is required (not PRO)
- Standard / Balanced disk
- CPUs / RAM and disk size depend on the size of the migration.
2. Connect to SSH (Secure Shell).
3. Install Redis using the following shell commands:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install redis-server
sudo systemctl enable redis-server.service
4. Verify installation using a ping command:
5. Update the binding by running:
sudo nano /etc/redis/redis.conf
- Use ‘Page Down’ to get to the bindings. Here, you’ll most likely see “bind 127.0.0.1”. You need to simply edit this to 0.0.0.0
- Then hit CTRL+X to Exit
- Then hit Y to save.
6. Restart redis using this command:
sudo service redis-server restart
Additional investigation / troubleshooting may require the Redis logs, which can be obtained by running the command:
sudo tail /var/log/redis/redis-server.log
7. On your primary migration server, disable the local Redis service.
8. Now open the ‘CloudM Migrate Service Manager’
- Enter the Redis server’s internal IP address or hostname in the ‘Redis Server Location’ field
- Click ‘Update Configuration’
- Restart the service.
