    Default It's now a science - 11 Step Untangle Migration

    1.) Backup Untangle (this is automatic if you have live support)
    2.) Install Untangle on new hardware
    3.) Install demos of all packages on Untangle
    4.) Restore Untangle Backup
    5.) Manually configure network interfaces to pickup the settings that were missed on restore.
    6.) Verify interface assignments
    7.) Power down old Untangle server
    8.) Remove old Untangle server
    9.) Plugin new Untangle server
    10.) Power up new Untangle server.
    11.) Migrate Untangle license.

    I haven't done step 11 yet, demos will last the weekend just fine, and I prefer to play with licenses with UT support is around to help should crap hit the proverbial fan.

    Still, when was the last time you did a server migration with any other product across a hardware boundary in 30 min?

    This, is the Untangle I know and love! My old server, had 460 days of uptime on her when I powered her down. She's almost five now, older than Intouch Technology is. She needs a new hard disk, some new fans, and will make a decent toy for my daughter. She's just a bit old to be running my network.

    But, the "other" in question decided to remove the open hardware option. Not good... They tried to get us involved, I'm really glad we didn't now.

    They made some specific changes to the reseller program to explicitly shutdown 3rd party appliance manufacturers.

    Yes, and Jim and I dodged a bullet on that one. Which is a shame, because there was a ton of potential there. Jim and I just never had the time for it, and then the buy out...

    Well let's just say we're rather afraid of what an Untangle buy out would mean.
