MSE 8510 clustering and keeping static meeting rooms

I have 2 8510 blades with 100 static meeting rooms on each.

These rooms have e164 numbers I have given out to users for thier meeting rooms.

We are running out of capacity and will be adding another 8510 blade.

I would like to cluster all 3 8510 blades.

However, I do not want to have to manually re-create the 200 meeting rooms.

My plan would be to make 1 of the blades with 100 rooms primary, leaving 100 rooms I will lose.

I will make a transform on the VCS-C to replace the prefix of the slave blade to the prefix of the master blade.

I will then try to script the 100 permanent rooms via putty with the API...

Anyone ever do this or have any insight?

Re: MSE 8510 clustering and keeping static meeting rooms

Here's what I'd do:

  1. Perform a backup of both 8510 blades via settings > upgrade > backups
  2. Cluster both blades
  3. Backup the configuration of the newly clustered blades
  4. Open all the backup files in an XML editor
  5. Find the portion of text in the old files that specify all your meeting rooms
  6. Paste the meeting room text into the cluster backup and save
  7. Restore the modified cluster backup

I've done something similar with 8710 blades, back in the day where you had to manually had to define all the CTS endpoints. I had 50+ endpoints I had to add to three clusters, so I used the method above except I pasted the CTS endpoint text rather than the meeting room information.

Just be very careful to ensure you paste the right text in the right place.
