Transfer directories and files safely by using the "tar" command.
Posted on 2005-03-08
I am in the process of transferring directories and files from a old Sun server to a new Sun Server and decommision the old server. In general, the new Sun server will be identical in configuration to the old Sun server. How do I transfer all of the directories and files safely to the new Sun server by using the "tar" command? What configuration do I need to edit on the new server so that the transition will go smoothly?
Thank you very much for your help.
