comment Changing partition table, Centos 6.3 on Hetzner Server
I complained to Hetzner about installimage's limitation of not supporting GPT a while ago and they said they were working on adding GPT support but it might be a while. Meanwhile you can edit a local copy and make the needed changes (if you're brave); it's just a perl script.

comment Migrate raw disk image over LAN
It's gonna take a while. Realized I have a gigabit port with a 100 Mbit/s allocation. Crap.

That would also eliminate the spurious/scary "No space left on device", since it's going to resize /dev/sda3 down to about 1.3 TB and will be copying it into a partition on the destination that's expecting to hold about 2.9 TB.

comment Migrate raw disk image over LAN
Awesome! I'm OK with copying the partition's free space because these instructions meet all of my other criteria. Although, wouldn't just resizing the filesystem and the partition itself on oldserver eliminate the need to copy all the free space? I don't care about /boot because it's so small, but for / at least, I could do that, right? Just set the partition's end sector to equal what sector resize2fs sets the end of the FS sector to. Well, sector, block... probably block. But thanks for this! This is great!

comment Migrate raw disk image over LAN
mdadm? I'm using hardware RAID. And I have no idea what AOE is, and have never used iSCSI. I don't think my servers are in the same broadcast domain, just in the same datacenter. There's at least one or two switches between the servers.

I think partimage can do raw copies that are filesystem aware, but it doesn't support ext4. So there goes that as an option... rsync is looking nicer as an option, as long as it preserves all discretionary access controls (a la chmod) and can cleanly copy over symlinks and device files...

comment How to avoid automatic responses from putting our mail server in a loop?
Which mail server are you using? Any solution would be implementation-specific to the functionality of the mail server and the operating system.
