SUMMARY Migrating from a 280R to a V480

Unfortunately the migration i had in mind was not possible due to the fact
that the V480 turned out to be way too different to the 280R.
The boot died a painful death. It did not seem to matter what changes were
However we are currently looking at SUN WebStart Flash as a possible
alternative for the migration.
Other then that a full migration may be in order.



Original Question

I have been given the task of Migrating users off a SUN 280R running
Solaris 8 02/02 to a Sun V480. The V480 has been setup with match in
hardware except CPU and Memory

Due to a small time constraint i have been given would it be possible to
remove the disks from the 280R and install them in the V480 with out too
much trouble keeping the operating system intact. Other wise a full
migration will be in order, if that is the case management can deal with

Please excuse the type of question but i was given very short notice.
