Tom, I was linked to this thread by the OP and I am in the exact same position. Wayne is 100% correct in what I need and I believe that to be what George1421 needs too.
Lets break it down simply.
- Create image on “Master” server.
- Replicate image to all other storage nodes in the same group.
- Update the remote servers DB to reflect what the “Master” server just copied.
Steps 1 and 2 work fine but there doesnt appear to be a way to do step 3 automatically. This would not be such a major issue if I were able to manually create the image definition at each site, but when I try I am presented with nothing but a white screen saying “add image definition” on the top left and absolutely nothing more on the screen.
I dont want to export/import mysql DB files from the “Master” to the remote sites, I have been doing that for years with .32 and its not a very good practice. Simply updating the remote mysql tables to reflect the images that were just copied should not be a huge task for your software to perform.
Does that explain what I am and also I believe George1421 to be looking for?
