Its that time of the milenium again for me to upgrade the server that I
use for BM 3.7 (YEAH to the financial gods for granting me this).

Anyway - this is the first time I'm doing this, so I need some advice...

I plan to install NW 6.5 - SP5 on the new server and then BM 3.8 or BM 3.7

What I need to know is how can I go about transferring the information
from the old server to the new one. I understand that CACHE will just be
recreated - but what about my settings and stuff - is there an easy way to
do this.

I'd like to avoid doing something like an "image" because I want to be
sure that I don't copy over anything that could be corrupt - and I think
I'd like to move up to 3.8.

If you think there is no advantage to 3.8 vs. 3.7 then I'll stay at 3.7.

Thanks - also have a question about my packet filters - is there a way to
copy over those filters from one server to the next or not (or, am I
asking this on the wrong forum?).

Thanks again.
