CMU Migration

Cobalt Migration Utility:

BlueOnyx uses a modified version of the "Cobalt Migration Utility" (a.k.a.: CMU). This allows to export and import sites, users, settings and mailing lists. Those imports can then be imported on other BlueOnyx servers or compatible platforms.

"CMU" is already installed on BlueOnyx by default.

The "CMU" version that is installed on our sister project BlueQuartz is much older and doesn't allow you to import sites from BlueOnyx.

For BlueOnyx only:

Please check out Easy Migrate, our new and much more comfortable migration utility for migrations between BlueOnyx servers.

For BlueQuartz only:

If you still need to migrate from a BlueQuartz to BlueOnyx, then please install our PKG that allows to install the latest version of the BlueOnyx CMU on BlueQuartz. This updated CMU provides the BlueQuartz CMU with the following new capabilities and fixes:

  • Version number was increased to CMU 2.90-0BX01 for better compatability with BlueQuartz.
  • Fixed a bug that caused that all public web files were owned by "root" after cmuImport.
  • Removed password dialogue from cmuImport for all platforms but RaQ550 and TLAS.
  • Added checks to cmuImport and cmuExport to make double sure only a root user can run them.
  • File size of exported tarballs is now reported correctly by cmuExport (if they are larger than 1MB).
  • Fixed import issue for sites with SSL certificates (misleading error message was generated).
  • Imported several improvements from BlueQuartz CMU 2.66-0BQ18 which we had not yet in our code.
  • Fixed issue that might prevent imports of suspended users.
  • Fixed issue where restored mailing list lost their reply behaviour settings.
  • Added new error message for Vsite imports on Aventurin{e} with unavailable IP addresses.
  • Fixed issue where the first extracted file from a user's public tarball couldn't be chowned correctly.
  • Ability to import BlueOnyx sites and users
  • Ability to import BlueApp sites and users
  • Fixes empty mail spool issue after cmuImport
  • Added ability to import sites and user from 5107R and 5108R, too.
  • New: Modified the import procedure to allow import of vsites and users files even if the allocated quota for that respective site or user is too small to accomodate all these files. This is done by setting the vsite or user quota to unlimited, importing the files and then setting the quota back to what it should be.

The BlueQuartz PKG (it's really only needed on BlueQuartz - not BlueOnyx!) is available here.

Please note: Starting with version number 2.81 this PKG also installs an RPM that ties your server into a special YUM repository for future CMU updates. That YUM repository will only contain updated CMU versions for BlueQuartz and nothing else.

The RPM and SRPM of it are also available.
