The 2.8TB database must be moved to a new server in a new Data Center, and
upgraded from 8.4.17 to 9.6.6
Will this work?
Or must I:
1. temporarily allocate 3TB of scratch space on the new server,
2. install 8.4 on the new server,
3. install 9.6.6 on the new server,
2. rsync CURSERVER://var/lib/pgsql/data to
NEWSERVER://var/lib/pgsql/8.4/data, and then
Are there better ways? (The pipe from current DC to new DC will be 10Gbps.)
