    OSX Server migration

    Hi all,

    Anyone any idea of the best way of migrating OSX Server & WGM settings from one mac to another, both Mountain Lion? I've had a browse through the web & it seems migration assistant is the way forward, however if anyone knows a better way, any problems I might come across etc i'd appreciate the info. Cheers.

    Clone the whole OS install with SuperDuper or Carbon Copy Cloner would be my best recommendation. Migration Assistant has a bad habit of not working as expected.

    Thanks for that, I take it that it doesn't matter if the hardware is different with macs? Will anything mess up with the AD integration?

    As long as the newer/older hardware can both run the same versions of Mountain Lion you should be fine on that front. For AD I think the answer is "it depends"... worst case you may have to re-bind the OSX server, I think it depends on how restrictive your AD setup is (i.e. if it's setup to only allow bind from specific hardware/MAC addresses).
