I've also changed the host name of the new box I'm restoring too, also, when I try the restore..... Wait, If i have a different Root password on the new host than that which is on the source host. Would that cause my restore to fail? Because when I restore it looks like it'll be successful and then goes wrong.
P.S We taking bets if Mr Hancock comes? :-) He's always on the ball :D
