Hi list, I want to migrate one of my server (machine A) into another (machine B). My choice is using 'dump' and 'restore'. I've dumped all of my filesystem into third machine (machine C) over ssh. All went fine. Then, I want to restore it into machine B. This machine is newly fresh, no freebsd inside. My plan is restore the dump file into it by using installer CD. I use the cd/dvd fixit mode. At this time, my confusion begun. To restore it, I need to create the slice. I did 'fdisk' and 'disklabel' from sysinstall. But it failed. I followed tutorial from http://devpit.org/wiki/Dump_and_Restore_over_SSH [of course with some adjustment], but I still failed.
My question is, how is the right way to do the restore in a system that hasn't been installed with freebsd at all? From what I get in google, every restore example is done on a system that has been installed an OS. Thanks a lot guys! _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
