EL 7 Cacti Migration / Installation

Stages

Migration off of old server

Disable Poller on Old system

  • Comment out cron job in /etc/cron.d/cacti

Grab a copy of the database

On the old system:

mysqldump -u root -p cacti > cactidump.sql

If you're planning on using this on a galera cluster you will need to replace:

ENGINE=MyISAM

with

ENGINE=InnoDB

Convert the RRD files to XML

(Unverified): You can not just copy the old RRD files.
