How to move groups from one Airwave to another
Requirement:

 

For moving the group on Airwave with devices from one Airwave to another, make sure all devices are in monitor-only mode. This process will help in moving all the device in that group to the destination Airwave server along with the configuration present in that group.

 



Solution:

 

We can move the groups from One Airwave server to another using group dump and restore scripts.



Configuration:

 

We can follow the below steps for moving the group. On the source server go to the below path from Airwave CLI

# cd /root/svn/mercury/tools

 

Create a CSV file with the group names on your system using Excel and copy it to /var/airwave/custom/group_dumps on the source Airwave server and execute the below command from root directory,

 

# root 
# create_group_dump.pl /var/airwave/custom/group_dumps/csv_export.csv 

 

The CSV data file must contain a column named 'group_name' which specifies the groups which will be restored.

 Example CSV file format:

    group_name
    Home Office
    Remote Office
    Building 15

 

When we run the above script it will create a tar ball in the location /var/airwave/custom/group_dumps


Now copy the csv as well as the tar balls created under /var/airwave/custom/group_dumps from source server to destination server under /var/airwave/custom/group_dumps and execute the below command from root to restore the dump file.

# root 
# restore_group_dump.pl /var/airwave/custom/group_dumps/csv_export.csv 



Verification

 

We can login to the web interface of destination Airwave server and make sure we see all the group data.
