Copy large depots to another Ignite server... swcopy? scp?

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

We've got one working Ignite sever with several large depots added. 

Thing is I'm trying to set up another Ignite server in another network so I need to copy those depots from server A to server B. Should I copy them using swcopy or scp? Besides, if it's swcopy, can you tell me the ports which should be open in the firewall for this to work?

 

Regards.

If you have a directory depot, you'll need to register it on the other server if you use scp.

You can use swpackage to create a tape depot from a directory depot.

Thanks for answering.

 

Should I create the tape depot and then scp it to server B?

That may be faster than using scp to copy lots of files in a directory.
