What happens when moving the server to another house?

  • Hello!


    I am wondering what happens when I physically move my OMV Nextcloud server from one house to another (with different routers)? This will not lead to any changes other than the router settings (ports etc) in the new house, right? Of course my DuckDNS domain should be updated, but this will run automatically in Docker.


    Can someone confirm this if it is true?


    Best regards

  • Normally, your statement is correct, but it should be noted that the new router has the same configuration to the outside (IPV4 or IPV6). with IPV6 can (must not) come to problems.

    I think so. If you bring your current router with you then your gateway and subnet will remain the same, so it should go smoothly. Just do not discount Murphy's Law. Good luck.

    Simple and sure backup and restore: In a Scheduled Job: rsync -av --delete /srv/dev-disk-by-label-SOURCE/ /srv/dev-disk-by-label-DESTINATION/ (HT: Getting Started with OMV5)
    OMV Version: Ver. 5 (current) - Hardware: NanoPi M4, Nextcloud, Plex, Airsonic, Booksonic, Calibre, & Heimdall - Acer Aspire T180, backup - Odroid XU4, Pi-Hole (DietPi) - Testing/Playing: hc2, xu4, Pi 3B+, Odroid H2, and HP dx2400, Debian 10 XFCE.

    By "same configuration to the outside", do you mean port forwarding?

    I will not bring my current router with me. There will be a brand new router in the new house. If the network configuration is not the same, I will change this.
    I'm hoping Murphy's Law won't visit me :D
