Moving serial settings from one system to another
Posted on 1999-08-10
I want to know how to move a customized serial configuration from one Sun Sparc5 (SunOS 5.4) to a Sun Ultra (SunOS 5.6). Could I do this just by moving /etc/remote, or would there be more commands involved?
Background info...I have inherited a dusty old system with what appears to be some kind of serial multiplexer hanging off of a serial port. There are 5 modems attached to the mux via RJ-11 cable. I need to move it to a newer box with a newer OS. It's also running PERL 5.003 scripts.
So what I was thinking was...move /etc/remote to the new machine, plug in the mux, restore the custom /etc and rc.d scripts, install PERL, and I'm done.
But I know it can't be that simple. Am I totally oversimplifying?
