i have recently installed deltav 14.31 on DCS system porplus as domain and 12 operator work stations and one engineering
recently one ows hdd failed
i am unable to reinstall system from beginning as I am out of gradian
Do any one have a solution for this
considering if I got image from one OWS the restore on another new machine then use Deltav workstation configuration tool to rename the the domain recognizes this and blocks the original one from log on
which means i ll lose the running one and could not reconnect it to the domain
any help will be appreciated
I had a similar experience recently and what you suggest should be fine. A few gotchas to watch out for:
The above is not all inclusive, but a few of the issues I remember encountering. But long story short, it can be done and I've done it. Better to have a unique image of each machine when running on a domain. Makes the restoration process much easier (with the exception of the Autoswitch bug).
In reply to JoshC:
Thanks for your response point 1 is ok for me as I can disable autoswitch. point 2 as i understand i need to leave the domain then take the image then restore then change name then rejoin the domain for both machines (one by one) please correct me if I'am wrong point 3 even if i'll make image for each machine. image needs to be recent??? this means i need to take image for all machines monthly? or what do you recommend? point 4 the local admin is the same admin account when on domain. but the issue here it will work only when i leave the domain and change the machine to workgroup. other wise the machine wont logon locally with windows access. Is there is any means to take complete image using acronis or any software installed on a any machine on the network and the system is up and running? I mean can acronis run under windows and take image of any running machine on the network without shutting it down and boot using acronis bootable CD or USB? sorry for many questions
Changing node name by deltav workstation configuration or just change name and IPs?
or change name and ip then join domain then run workstation configuration Thanks
