Hello the linux community !
Today I have a challenge: move my "old" server to a newer one.
I have a Dell PE 850 for my personnal use running on Debian Lenny (ZoneMinder, Apache, Cacti, Nagios, SqueezeCenter, Transmission, DNS, Squid, Wins and domain, MySQL, Postfix and so on) but he is overloaded now....
(2 GB Ram and one P4 HT @ 3,6 GHz, 2 SATA HDD)
And now I have another machine: Dell PE SC1425 with 4 GB Ram and two Xeon HT @ 2,8 GHz with SCSI HDD and hardware RAID.
My idea is to move my current server to the new one without re-configuring and installing everything.
The old server has software RAID on two 250 Gb SATA HDD, formated with ReiserFS and the new server has hardware RAID on two 146 Gb SCSI HDD, I'll format it with XFS
As I have a NAS, the server has not a lot of data, I use about 20 Gb on HDD (and has only one partition)
I've found a solution here: http://www.linuxjournal.com/content/...ween-computers
But before broking everything, I would ask you witch is the best and secure method to migrate my server ?
What would you use if you have to do this migration ?
Many thanks for your ideas and comments
(Sorry for my bad english)
