Charon SSP Manager Overview

Migration from legacy systems can be done using existing backups, or by creating and transferring them via network or any storage device to Charon. Fresh installation of legacy operating system and applications can also be done on Charon as in the original systems to be replaced. The graph below demonstrates the different backup and restore strategies.

In this lab, the following requirements will be assumed:

  • Migrated data will be transferred over the network (site-to-site VPN connection) by leveraging the ufsdump utility.
  • The filesystem will be the Solaris standard UFS.
  • Simple disks will be used as targets (no LVMs, Veritas volumes, etc.)
  • The target environment has connectivity to the source environment.
