I’m setting up a new MIAB v63 to migrate an old server onto. I’m restoring files from a duplicity backup, but this is going to take a long time, and will be somewhat outdated by the time it’s finished. The old and new servers are up and running at the same time, and all the latest data is still on the old (live) server. After completing a restore on the new server, can I sync what’s changed since the backup by rsyncing from the old server to the new? Along the lines of:
rsync -avz --delete old.example.com:/home/user-data/ /home/user-data/
I know that there are some config files in that directory created during the new installation that this would overwrite (though the duplicity restore does this anyway), but the server is going to have the same name as the original, and I want everything to act identically. Should I keep the config files on the new box?
Is this feasible?
