how to backup QoS seings?

My boss want me to replace the old QoS Linux box to another with different hardware.
Is it possible to backup the QoS settings in "old" box and simply copy them to another box?

My experience with Linux can be described as "yes, i know how to boot from CD and run GUI Linux setup".

Any recommended FAQ to read?

You would need to be a lot more specific than "QoS Linux box". What distribution is it running, what software is it running, is it a custom setup or something from a vendor, etc, etc?

I remember I did a similar job in the past, the migration of an old release of esmith to the lastest release. Too many changes were done between the both versions. So, it was actually impossible to migrate from one to the other, that's also include step by step migration.

The only way, was to inspect after saving on non-versatile media the old configuration, just in case.

Depending of what you 've set, the major configurations are done in the /etc, some in /usr/local/etc and some others in /var

Keep in mind, as more you give informations (release, recent changes, ...) as more we can help you.
