Rsync, or, R Sunk.

rsync -arvx –progress –delete [email protected]:/ /mnt/target

edit hosts, interfaces, and half a dozen or a dozen other configs

install boot loaders

reboot.

twiddle…

why the hell is clamav bitching about ownership…

and postfix too?  wtf is going on.

*lights come on* AWW CRAP.

GUH.  UID’s *ALL* messed up.

Remember, tar, and rsync, both try to do some Stupid Tricks with UID’s and GID’s.  So don’t forget –numeric-ids

Now, I’m leaving you all while I go work on some find … chown foo.
