we are in the process of commissioning a new OMERO 5.6 . I was thinking the best way to do this would be to:
- schedule some down time
- restore a backup of the older server to the new one
- switch the old server to read-only somehow
- turn the new server on and have the old server still active
- get people to check that everything OK on the new server
What would the best way to freeze the old server. I was thinking to just convert all the groups to read-only (though I’m not sure how the default group would respond to that).
Any other advices / suggestions for the migration would be appreciated.
