Hello to everyone

I want to backup my entire Rhel system, most important is the structure of system files (data is saved over an external disk) .
These are my issues :

1. Back up the main structure of the system ( /etc/ /bin/ [...] ) , data will be saved over an external disk.

2. If i will change my devices how can I recover my LVM structure? Shall I do it again?

3. How can i recover the proper structure once i installed again my Rhel system? I guess not should be a copy and paste only. So, how i could backup for example my /etc folder ?

4. If i change my hardware configuration how it will be affected my Rhel System?

Thank you for now though i guess it will be a long question..

Hi there,

It's a little unclear to me what you are trying to achieve. Why do you want to reinstall - are you moving to new hardware?

Have a look at - that may help you.
