My LM13 LST server is having problems and I think it's time to upgrade to a less buggy release. I am thinking that LM 15 Cinnamon
I was wondering if the resident backup and restore application found in administration would be a good choice to save the home folders and then restored once the install is completed. Maybe rsync instead?
I'm looking for ways to save time in rebuilding the box and need a way to return the home folders to identical states such as user email files, favorites in firefox, and other application settings. I have a number of oracle virtual machines a la vbox that I'll also need to preserve.
I'll be saving etc, and tftp and a few other "system" folders as well.
Will doing a blind restore of the users home folders break the new version ?
Any other folders I need to look at ?
