Systems Management Question
09/17/2014 2371 views
We have a virtual k1 and k2 and we need a good way to test them with taking them down for extended periods or risking accidental deployments to other systems on the network. My question is this: "Would it be possible to take a snapshot of the systems and load them into a totally offline (4 or 5 port) switched network?" I dont want to infringe on anything or break any copyrights. I am just looking for a safe way to perform testing and configurations. The problem that i have is that the systems are currently in use and used on a fairly regular basis. I was given administration over the systems as and i just finished the jumpstart training videos. I was not with the company when they were purchased and i am struggling to perform tests because of one instance that happened and patches were pushed to every system in the company. It was due to a feature that i was unaware of and had to spend almost 4-1/2 hours rolling back patches on some of the critical systems. Would appreciate all the help I can get.
