I have personally used this guide to migrate the Server multiple times without issue in the past. I'm not sure of the Linux file paths, but they should be very similar if not the same.

 

Good luck

Currently running Emby on a HP N36L Microserver with Ubuntu 16.04. Server has a 5 drives, with 1 for boot, and 4 in a sw RAID in which all my media is on.

 

For various reasons, the server is running out of oomph, so its finally time to upgrade. Going to move the lot to a ML10 V2 which on paper at least meets all my requirements.

 

Will likely remain using Ubuntu 16.04, and definitely the same sw RAID drives so my media paths will all remain intact ie: /media/RAIDdrive/TV/ for TV etc.

 

What is the best/recommended way to ensure after i reinstall, i can keep my watched/unwatched and other data intact for the migration?

 

Any suggestions/experience very much appreciated

+1 for the guide https://emby.media/c...te-emby-server/.  Used it a couple weeks ago w/o issue.
