I have to migrate a VPS (on OVH) to a dedicated server. I plan to do this with dd over netcat.

  • boot two server on rescue mod,
  • copy sda from vps to dedicated
  • ( optional extend partition )
  • reboot !

In theory that work fine.

But what i need to do before and after for 100% success of my migration ?

  • lot of undocumented micro service run on this server ... if i can avoid digging in this shit for finding all dependancy of this obscure project that would be nice ;) – Andrelec1 Oct 30 '18 at 13:54
  • Server migrations are a great chance to test your backup and restore methods. You are backing stuff up right? – ivanivan Oct 30 '18 at 15:04
  • @ivanivan there no real backup, just vps snapshot :/ – Andrelec1 Oct 31 '18 at 9:37
