Hey there, I am thinking about grabbing a new, more powerful server from my datacenter than the server I use at the moment. To be able to easy switch all websites, mail accounts and other services to a new hardware I have the following setup on my old machine: Hardware Node: Debian 6.0 with Proxmox pve kernel All other servers: openvz-containers ISPConfig3 installed on all servers, virtual and hardware Panel server is one of the virtual servers My first question: Do you have any suggestions on the selection of the distribution for the new server? Would you suggest me to go on using Debian with Proxmox kernel or is it better to rely on RedHat/CentOS? Which distribution has the better maintained openVZ packages? For the serverchange I planned the following steps: - Setting up the new hardware node and installing as ISPConfig V-Server - Setting a lower TTL for all A and AAAA DNS records - Stopping first container - Creating a vzdump - Copy the dump to the new server - restore from dump on new server - changing V-Server ID for migrated server in panel database - changing IP for migrated server via ISP - next container What do you think about this steps?
