Hello All.

 

I currently have a Emby Server on Windows 10. I have it pretty much how I want. I use Storage Spaces with a handful of drives.

 

I want to dual boot my PC with Fedora or Linux Mint and also set up my Server on it as well. This server will have its own drive but it will have the same data as the other. The perfect situation is that no matter which system I boot into, Emby is running fine in the background.

 

I have just downloaded an add-on app to save my server settings. I have a copy of those settings on my new drive.

 

So, I am needing some help on how to migrate these settings from a Windows 10 install to either a fedora/Linux Mint install.

 

Is there a guide, link, or walk through that will show me what to do? The hardest part about setting up a new server is getting everything just right. I would like to make that not as difficult, especially adding the users again.

 

Thanks!

You know each server will keep its own userdata.

Thanks for the link. And yes, I know that User data will vary. The main thing is that I will avoid server downtime. Eventually I will stick to one OS and not have to skip back and forth. I was just afraid that, because of the difference between Windows and Linux, I would lose all of the settings. I could just set it all up again from scratch, but having even a little bit of a head start will help so much.

 

Being able to have a close to seamless transition is the goal. Every day I am more and more glad I left Plex for Emby. I hope my 5 bucks a month goes to good use!

Overall you can restore almost everything except Library definitions as all the paths will be different on each OS, and Playlist as there are paths also.
