Linux server is dead, how to restore?


Hi,

One of my Linux server running Redhat version 3 is dead. I already build the new server but I need to get few of the license files from the old server. Currently, I booted the old server using the CDROM. But when I go to /mnt/sysimage/var, I don't see any of files? I also went to /mnt/sysimage/usr and I don't see any thing. Not sure what I am doing wrong.

Please help.

When you boot the old servers disk from CDROM what does 'fdisk -l' show?
If no disks show does 'dmesg|less' show any disk detection anomalies?
