We have a local OBS instance (openSUSE 11.2) and we are running

The plan is to move to a new server and migrate the OBS data to the new

* Note that we are not using an appliance.

The new server is running openSUSE 11.4 and we have installed
obs-server-2.1.11-4.5.x86_64 on that server.

What is the best way to migrate the data (OBS projects, etc.) across to the
new server. We've looked for any relevant documentation, but could not
find anything.

This is what we did to prototype the migration:

- rsync everything from oldserver:/srv/obs/* to newserver:/srv/obs
- mysqldump on old server and then on the new server 'mysql < dump.db'
- Bringup all OBS services on the new server.

sounds good.

Not sure if we have missed any steps or if there is a better way about going
about this. Could you please point us to any related documentation or
describe the proper process for the scenario described above.

I don't have any. But when you document the process, I would be happy to
include it into our reference book :)
