My manager has a couple of 2-proc dual-core Opteron servers with 8GB of RAM and RAID controllers. These servers currently run Solaris 8, but he wants to migrate them to a newer Linux systems (at least two for redundancy [whatever that means]). Does anyone have any suggestions for how to do this?

Hi.

>> a couple of 2-proc dual-core Opteron servers with 8GB of RAM and RAID controllers.

Glorified Personal computers . . .

Are they 64-bit? MAKE SURE or yiou will waste RAM:

You are joking, or you don't underdstand redundancy?

First quewstion: Does he want to buy red hat lINUX OR oRACKLE UNBREAKABLE lINUX?

THEN, YOU JUST FOLLOW THE INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS!

Are you planning on networking the servers together with Streams?

Yes, that was a joke (I guess it was pretty stupid). Anyway, I don't know if they are 64-bit or not. Also, he doesn't want to buy anything (I'm assuming he already has the linux system he wants). I also don't know if he is planning on networking the servers together with Streams. The only other thing I know is that the security will be better.

I did send him this link, asking if this plan would be sufficient: http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/howto-move-mi...-to-new-server/

However, he responded with this

"That looks like a pretty good way to migrate the accounts after NIS is installed if the security levels were the same. As we have it, we'll need to install NIS on the Linux system and migrate the user accounts into new higher-security accounts, pretty much like new users. I would like to do that without having to get all of the users to re-enter their passwords again, if possible."

Replication ain't free- you culd be able to get a clue . . . . (Data Guard)?

Then you may have a 2-node RAC . . . Check your license costs!
