Our compnay is planning to migrate old Solaris(8/9/10) Servers to new data-center, have to physically re-locate few servers after shutting it down...
How i can make sure all will be up fine after re-location,Not dropping then them is good. Moving them very gently is even better. Remembering/Marking how to plug them in is good also.
what if something goes wrong?Consider it a challenge
what backups i should have and how to take them & restore/recover them?You should have this in place anyway. And a DR plan.
Any other suggestion to make preparation would help .....You should probably hire specialist help. Any consider whether you should really be buying new servers and migrating onto those, especially if your maintenance has lapsed.
