Migrating Windows to Fedora version?

Hi,

 

We would like to migrate our PBXNSIP Windows installation to a Fedora Core 1 host.

 

I asked our provider if it's working and this is what he said :

 

Fedora Core 1 is compatible with Red Hat and CentOS, but it is recommended that you install a Fedora Core 1 package. Try on http://rpmfind.net/ and http://rpm.pbone.net/

 

Does anyone have experience with this kind of migration?

 

Can I backup/restore all settings, files, voicemails, autoattendants, etc... from the Windows version and restore in the Fedora version?

 

What things should I consider before doing this?

I am currently in the process of migrating our Windows servers over to Linux. After the Linux server is built, we have had no issues migrating the customers on the Windows servers over to the Linux server. We simply use the domain backup utility to do the migration. The only thing we find that does not get properly tarred up in the domain backup is customized MOH files that the customer may have been using but this is easily overcome.

I would make a backup of the working directory and copy it to the new host. There are no differences between Windows and Linux, even the CRLF are the same. Of course, you need to have another executable for the PBX itself; but that should be easy in Linux.

Aside from the financial aspect of the move, would you share your reasoning? We have deployments using both, and find that we have far more options managing our windows installations. Performance and reliability has been no issue on either platform.

We are a hosted environment, meaning multiple domains on multiple servers. The main reason behind the migration is that we have found we can have more domains per server on the Linux servers with less impact than on the Win2003 servers. Please see the attached pdf.

Seems we had a similar finding, see http://wiki.pbxnsip.com/index.php/Performa...perating_System.
