How to "copy" system image to new server
I have Red Hat 9.0 running on two servers. It is up to date on all patches (at least as up to date as possible since Red Hat no longer supports this version). Neither of these servers support RAID. I had a disk crash and was able to restore from TAR (TGZ) Backups.
I have set up a new server which supports RAID and now want to move a mirror image of the old server to this new one. I have tried setting up Red Hat 9 on the new server and then copying the TAR Backups from the old server. Since I want to pick up all of the Red Hat Updates, I copied all of the mountpoints.
The new system will not boot, but hangs on the GRUB Command.
I am assuming this problem is caused by the different disk layouts. Is there any way to fix GRUB so it will boot?
If not what is the best way to create a mirror of the old server?
