#606 Issue closed: rear restore from one physical server to another

msoupramanien opened issue at 2015-07-01 19:37:


I took a rear backup of a physical server running RHEL5.4. I have to recover it on a different physical server with different hostname and IP. Could you please let me know how to do it.

Thanks and Regards,

Did you try to recover the replacement server? It should "just work" :-)

After the recovery, before rebooting, you will have to go to /mnt/local and adjust the hostname and IP address in the configuration files.

Hi Schlomo,

Thanks for your comments. I will update the hostname and IP in the configuration files as mentioned before rebooting.
