Hi Linux Masters,
Background : I have two RH server. One is fully installed with the required rpm packages file. And another RH server which is freshly install.
Issue : Assuming I do not have the RPM files. Is there anyway to migrate the installed RPM from one server to another fresh server ?
This is possible,
if its just a few rpms then you can use rpmrebuild,
Just issue the command: rpmrebuild <packagename>
this will store package in: /usr/src/redhat/RPMS, then you just copy rpm to destination machine.
The other option is to image the system using rsnapshot and restore over the fresh installation.
No, you will need to use rpm --whatrequires option to find dependencies for the rebuild rpms for these too.
