  1. check QIP entry, boot template has to be bios_linux. If you have to change it, wait up to one hour for the dhcp server to push the update
  2. comment additional network ethX configuartion lines in the host yaml file ( deb 9 has no ethX anymore)
  3. change the entry in
    1. Make sure to set Environment/Umgebung to production and reselect puppet-master if it's empty.
    2. in the "schnittstellen" tab, click change on the main entry and make sure everything is set. Sometimes the IPv4 Subnet dropdown get's lost. If one changes the mac address, the IP address field always gets blank
    3. change the Betriebssystem/OS to Debian 10.7, partitiontable di Debian preserve /home. For replacement Hardware only di Debian (because no /home exists on empty harddrives)
  4. check the backup state,
    1. run dsmc incr.
    2. If there is no backup for this host, copy /usr/local/experiment, /home/$user and /opt/hidra/conf (if it exists, detectors only)
    3. if the desired, not backuped, host is a tango host ( echo $TANGO_HOST ) also run /usr/local/sbin/mysql_backup and copy /var/lib/mysqlbackup afterwards (check if something with the current date is in the folders)
  5. start the installation by booting from the network interface. If you have to replace the hardware and there is a sis1100 card make sure to also follow this: SIS1100 EEPROM Change
  6. wait at least 40 minutes. You can check if the basic installation is still running by checking the timestamp of puppetBootstrap.log in /root. If it's still updated, the installation still runs.
  7. run apt-get update && apt-getupgrade
  8. if you think it's done, make another puppet run to be sure. If puppet fails because of "userdel tango" not possible, do service tango-db stop and service tango-starter stop and run puppet again
  9. reboot
  10. restore the backup / copied files
    1. dsmc restore "/usr/local/experiment/*"
    2. dsmc restore "/var/lib/mysqlbackup/tango/*"
    3. dsmc restore "/var/lib/mysqlbackup/nxsconfig/*"
  11. if the desired host was a tango_host
    1. tango stop
    2. cd /var/lib/mysqlbackup/tango and use gunzip on the latest file
    3. mysql -u root -p -D tango < the_latest_file.sql
    4. cd /var/lib/mysqlbackup/nxsconfig and use gunzip on the latest file
    5. mysql -u root -p -D nxsconfig < the_latest_file.sql
    6. tango start
    7. check astor if everything works
  12. If online was or should be installed: follow the online/spectra installation procedure ( or ask thorsten to do it). There is an and exp_ini.exp in /online_dir/ if that is the case
  13. uncommenct the network eth configuration lines in the host yaml file again and change the interface names to the correct ones
  14. mv ~/.ipython/profile_spockdoor ~/.ipython/profile_spockdoor.old #as user → .k5login
  15. run -x #as user → .k5logink5login // check /online_dir/
  16. if SardanaAIO starts pool and macroserver, you might have to replace the python2.7 paths. One spot for this paths is /online_dir/ Replace python2.7 by

    grep -rl 'python2.7' /online_dir/ |xargs sed -i 's/python2.7/python3/g'
