I have a new server ready to go. Both are running the same OS (CentOS 5) and are on the same physical LAN / subnet. They can see and ping each other and connections via SSH is perfectly fine. My question is what is the most recommended way to get everyone's /home/$user directory moved to the new server from the old server? I basically want the /home server from 'srv_old" copied to "srv_new". I just ran the following from 'srv_old' using 'srv_new' as the destination. I created a test directory and placed 4 files in it. I then created the same directory on the destination server (srv_new) and placed some different files in the test directory to see what happens: Code: [root@mail zoo]# rsync -ave ssh /zoo/ [email protected][email protected] The above basically copied everything in 'srv_old:/zoo/' to 'srv_new:/zoo/'. Does anyone know if what I did was correct or do you have an easier suggestion? See something wrong with my command syntax?
