I currently have a BM 3.6Sp2 VPN server setup as the master and all is
well
:)

The hardware on the server is not really up to the job so I'll be
upgrading
that. I'm just wondering if a normal hardwrae upgrade porcess using
DSMAINT
is good enough for a VPN master server?

the plan is as follows;

Install O/S + Patches on new server which will be installed in a bogus
tree.
Install BMEE 3.6 plus patches then configure exactly the same as
original
server, i.e. vpn tunnels, filters..etc
Tell original server its having a hardware upgrade and copy DS files
onto
new server.
Remove DS fron new server and install original DS via
DSMAINT/NWCONFIG.

I'm hoping this process will carry keep the current VPN config in tact
if
anybody knows/suspects anything different or I've missed a
trick....please
let me know

Thanks in advance
