I want to migrate my old server (Redhat Enterprise) data to a new server (Rackspace hosting) without downloading the files.

Thanks for the help!

  • Please, give some more information to avoid guessing – chmeee Mar 14 '10 at 11:02
  • You should include at least the source and destination OS and how much data you have. – Embreau Mar 14 '10 at 11:18
  • Without moving a physical server from location A to location B, how would you do this without downloading/transferring files, unless you're well versed in manipulating wormholes? – Bart Silverstrim Mar 14 '10 at 12:41

Dump the file system of the server and send it over, then restore the files you need?

/sbin/dump -0uan -f - / | gzip -2 | ssh -c blowfish user@backupserver.example.com dd of=/backup/server-full-backup-`date '+%d-%B-%Y'`.dump.gz

restore -i

Log into the new one and ftp the data from the old one across?
