    Exclamation Migrate to New Hardware Platform

    Hi, new to this forum and very new to Linux, so not going to try to pretend I know anything about Linux so any help will be gratefully appreciated.

    My problem is I have been asked as part of a Data Centre Migration (with no Linux skills) to move two SUSE Linux Enterprise v9 boxes.

    The problem I have is that the existing SUSE Linux Boxes are running on HP Proliant DL380 G5 servers and as part of the migration we are being forced to install them on IBM LS22 Blades.

    I am hoping to P2P the boxes but am not aware of any tools that may be available to inject drivers for the new hardware.

    Are there any tools available to do this like DD Changer for Wintel?
    Or has anybody ever carried out this procedure successfully that can give me a step by step guide on how to successfully complete this task.

    Many Thanks in advance.

    first, i'm not aware of an SLE version 9 (not saying there is not one,
    just that i'm not aware of it) and suggest you explore the possibility
    that those servers have not had any security updates in a long time
    (like years) *think* seriously about moving to SUSE Linux Enterprise
    Server (SLES) version 11, which i believe will be a better match to
    your new hardware..

    second, you may not know there is a forum specially for you:
    'SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) - NOVELL FORUMS'
    (http://tinyurl.com/69jvat)

    personally, i think i'd do a new SLES install on the Blue hardware
    (hey, IBM sells them with SLES installed) and then just have to
    'inject' the data over from the HPs..

    Nevertheless, someone with sufficiently more knowledge than me on this
    subject may still reply here.

    When this is indeed is about "SUSE Linux Enterprise v9 boxes" as you state, I think you are better of posting at SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) - NOVELL FORUMS.

    This is openSUSE. May be you get help here, but at the right forum the help may be even better
