Migrating data from one hpcc to a 2nd

Post questions specific to installation or configuration for the HPCC Systems platform

Is there a tool for transferring THOR files from on hpcc system to another? If so, what is its name? Also, does the tool use SSL?

ECL Watch has a function called Remote Copy. This allows you to copy from one environment to another.

"DFUPlus copy" also provides the ability to remote copy by specifying a srcdali.

STD.File.Copy has a similar parameter -- sourceDali . You might also look at STD.File.RemotePull.

Jim, Thanks.

Do you know if the data is encrypted, i.e. ssl, when the copy is done? This is important, since the internet will be used to connect the 2 systems.

All of those tools have the option to run using SSL (or TLS as it is now known) but that requires an ESP server configured to use HTTPS for ECL Watch.

It would need a certificate installed, too.

Once this is set up, you would either:
* access ECL Watch using the HTTPS URL or
* Specify the ECLWatch server URL using HTTPS in DFUPlus or
* Specify the HTTPS protocol in the espserverIPport parameter for STD.File.Copy

Configuring ESP server to use SSL is detailed in the Installing and Running guide.

The communication from your browser to the ESP is encrypted, however, I am not certain about the path of the data copy.

I will discuss with developers to make sure and let you know more.
