I’m in the process of building a replacement for an existing Ignition gateway. I’m not doing in-place upgrade to get rid of cruft that has built up on the system and to bump to a newer release of the Linux distro.
I initially restored a backup in disabled mode, and was enabling components like DB connections one at a time. I wanted to test as much as possible before shutting off the old server and pushing this into use.
However, when I did the initial restore, I also changed the gateway name from
blah-ignition2. Just now, I had the realization that historical tags appear to be stored relative to the server name they came from.
Will this server with a new name be able to seamlessly access and keep adding to history that was stored by the server with the old name, or do they need to match?
