I am just preparing to move our production system to a new Hardware.
If possible I would prefer to have the same users/userid's on the new Machine. There's also a MySQL Database which is needed on the new Machine.
I am considering to put the harddisk from the new machine into the old production system and then use a diskimager to clone the original harddisk.
Do you that is a good idea? What kind of diskimager would you recommend? And - since the new harddisk is larger then the old one - how can I use the additional space on the new harddisk?
Any other helpful tips how can I do the move without having to much efforts are very appreciated.
