how to move EP installation from one server to another server
we have a EP server installed. Now we have to move this EP instance onto a different machine. The source and target hardwareosDB would be the same.
Can some one tell me how to do it.
Is Homogeneous System Copy a solution for this. Or I have to install a new EP instance on the new server and then copy the contents from the old EP instance?
If I move the EP instance to the new server then will the portal run normally without any error or will i loose it and have to install it again?

Q1: Is Homogeneous System Copy a solution for this.
A1: Yes it is, its quick and works good now a days... (one small remark, I don't know if it still is true but System Copy with 6.40 required that the SID of the Source and Destination could not be the same, so if someone can fill me in on that?)
Q2: Or I have to install a new EP instance on the new server and then copy the contents from the old EP instance?
A2: Also a solution but, takes a bit more time and when you want a clone then you need to know exactly what was done when installing the inital system.
