Hi

I am interested in transferring my complete Trixbox setup from its existing PC to another. Has anyone tried this and if so, how did you accomplish it.

If i were running under Windows, I would just image the whole disk using True Image and restore to another disk. I am not sure how to accomplish this under Linux.  Would an alternative be to remove the hard disk from the Linux box and mount it in a Windows box and use disk imaging software, or is it easier to just transfer the hard disk from one box to another. Perhaps there a simpler Linux solution.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers Mike

Are you just using Asterisk and making changes using the FreePBX interface or are have you made other changes to the system? You can use the backup/restore function in FreePBX but that will only back up your Asterisk files and Voicemail and won't copy any other system changes.

Essentially yes, although I have made changes to the conf files directly. I would be happy to just get the same FreePBX configuration onto the new box. So I guess a backup and restore could be a viable option. Now to get the backup file onto the new box. Wish Linux was as easy to work with as Windows - I can feel the arrows coming in already.

Cheers Mike
