    When Voyager server IP address is changed, which files must be updated?

    Question

    When the IP address of a Voyager server is changed, which files need to be updated with the new IP address?

     

    Answer

    Files which may require updating if the Voyager Server IP is changed are listed below. Some files may not exist on some systems, and can therefore be ignored. 

    OS
    • /etc/hosts
    • /etc/networks
    • /etc/defaultrouter
    • /etc/netmasks
    • /etc/resolv.conf
    Apache
    • /m1/shared/apache2/conf/httpd.conf
    • /m1/shared/apache2/conf/ConfiguredVirtualHosts/*.conf
    Oracle
    • $ORA_NET/tnsnames.ora
    • $ORA_NET/listener.ora
    • $ORA_NET/sqlnet.ora
    Voyager
    • /m1/voyager/XXXdb/ini/voyager.ini
    • /m1/voyager/XXXdb/ini/voyager.env
    • /m1/voyager/XXXdb/ini/[client]svr.ini
    • /m1/voyager/XXXdb/etc/webvoyage/header.htm
    • /m1/voyager/XXXdb/etc/webvoyage/voyager.ini
    • /m1/voyager/XXXdb/etc/ascopac/opac.ini file
    • /m1/voyager/XXXdb/webvoyage/html/webvoy.htm
    Tomcat WebVoyage
    •  /m1/voyager/voydb/tomcat/vwebv/context/vwebv/WEB-INF/web.xml
    • /m1/voyager/voydb/tomcat/conf/server.xml

    Additional Files

    There may be additional files on the system which will need to be updated. Most often these will include:

    • Custom WebVoyage skin files, help pages, or landing pages
    • Third party software configurations
    • Custom scripts

     

    To aid in finding such files the following commands will locate files that contain IP information:

    • grep -rl "<ip address>" ./*
    • find . -type f -print | xargs grep <ip address>
    • find . -type f -print | xargs grep -l <ip address>

     

    DNS

    Update the DNS server with the new IP address. A and PTR records should be updated to allow for both lookup and reverse lookup.
