Ignite backup of one system on another

This may be dummy question.

I have ignite backup of my N4000 server running HPUX 11.00. Can I use the backup tape from this ignite backup to restore on another N4000 which may have different configuration ( disk at other adress, more CPU, more memory etc )
Thanks
IT is great!

Re: Ignite backup of one system on another

Yes you can. When Igniting the other system use the interactive install and it will ask you for all of the info it needs. Don't let it just automatically Ignite the second server. To be safe I always create the ignite tapes with the -i option (forces interactive).
/opt/ignite/bin/make_tape_recovery -v -I -x inc_entire=vg00


If it has wheels or a skirt, you can't afford it.
