    Default Upgrading hardware Q

    I'd like to upgrade from an Intel ITX-based custom box with Atom D2500, to a Protectli appliance box based on a dual core Intel Celeron 3865U 1.8-Ghz. This one:

    Is there any chance I'd be able to swap the hard drive over and be ready to go?

    Or would I need to perform a clean install on the new hardware, and then restore my configuration?

    Reason for swap: My Atom hardware is old, I'd also like to take more advantage of VPN for remote users but that Atom is going to struggle to keep up, I think. Finally, we've upgraded our circuit to a 50-Mbps fiber and it seems like the Atom struggles with the throughput.


    Details of what I have now:

    My current Untangle:
    Build: 13.0.0.20170623T125806.4453c79-1jessie
    Kernel: 3.16.0-4-untangle-686-pae
    History: yes (60)
    Reboots: 0 (0)
    Current active device count: 27
    Highest active device count since reboot: 33

    My current hardware:
    uptime: 354d 1h 4m
    Server: custom
    CPU Count: 2
    CPU Type: Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU D2500 @ 1.86GHz
    Architecture: i386
    Memory: 4.23 GB
    Disk: 116.73 GB

    Do a fresh install and then restore the backup.

    FWIW, that atom should handle 50Mbit without even breaking a sweat. Unless you have a massive number of devices or some other unique circumstances.

    If you already ordered the hardware, then I guess it doesn't matter anyway, but if not you can probably just troubleshoot the issue if you have one.

    The reality is, the hardware is old enough that a unit deployed at the same time developed one or two bad caps over the years. I replaced the caps on that unit, but then also realized I'd like to employ some VPN compatible w/ the iPhone. So it was a combination of factors which makes replacing the hardware the right move, IMHO.

    I will do some more testing, though, with the Atom to see if before/after has any difference.
