I asked this in the install forum but,

I really would like to do an across the wire upgrade like we used to do. You know, where the new server hardware takes on all of the services and the name of the old server.

I am talking about an SLES10/OES2 to SLES10/OES2 migration I guess. It just looks like it can not be done. I want the same software config, just new hardware.
