Quick and dirty installl guide for 2 servers (app and DB)

Well, I want to keep my development environment as similar to my live
environment as possible. so yeah, I want to split up the 2 servers.

Right now I am using vmware to try and convert p2v my servers and then i
will just change the IPs and names. we shall see if that works.

if that doesnt work, maybe i will just do a single server install.

Honestly, the install guide is one the Epicor's better

don't mean to sound like a smart ass, but there aren't
really any major
issues with it. If you take your time and read everything
you should end up
with a clean working install.

Now if you trying for something more exotic than a normal
--splitting your app and db server, loading multiple
versions side-by-side,
etc-- I retract my earlier statements.
