  • 1.  Preserving "Tags" added to the HMC GUI

    Posted Wed February 28, 2024 01:03 PM


    Is it possible to preserve the Tags added to the HMC interface?

    I can export them through the GUI but I see no way to import them to a "new" HMC.

    Also Can this be done by a script or command so we can automate the flow.

    Hi Kristoffer Pettersson,

    We can use 'Data Replication' to sync the tags between the HMC.  We need to use 'Group data' type in the data replication for this.

    Hi Vijay,

    Any way to preserve the tags when doing an LPM ?

    Hi Vijay, at what level did that option come in to effect ?

    I asked sometime ago for being able to do this via cli and no-one in support even suggested the use of 'Data Replication' as an option

    There is little documentation I can find on this 'Group data' type option - it would be useful to see what else is covered - any pointers to doc ?

    The support of Groups/Tags in data replication was introduced in HMC V10 R1 M1010.

    We can preserve Groups/Tags when doing an LPM as well. This option to support Tags in LPM works from HMC V10 R2 M1040 onwards . If it's a cross HMC migration, then both source and destination HMCs should be setup with data replication before starting LPM.
