Switching Servers

We also made a server change. The fastest quickest way to get up and running for us was to yank the old hard drive and drop it into the new server. I made the old drive the boot drive and was able to make measured changes in easy steps and not interfere with my users work. Down time was about an hour.

I would try to backup directories: /vantage/db, /vantage/ud, and
/vantage/userform. Do the normal install, and replace those directory
with the backup one. I did that successfuly on 3.0, not sure about 4.0
