Moving a mount drive between servers

    Hey there! I don't see why that wouldn't work. You'd just want to ensure that the accounts exist on the machine first, as moving the home directories isn't enough to restore or recreate the accounts.

    I think some more context is needed. If you're adding a drive and wanting to mount /home off it it, what you need to do is: 1) mount the drive initially as something else, like /home2, 2) rsync all files from /home to /home2 3) unmount /home and /home2 4) remount the new drive as /home Alternatively, you can just mount it as /home2 and use the WHM "rearrange accounts" function to move the accounts to /home2, and leave them there. This will also update all configurations for users to use /home2, and create a symlink from /home/$user to /home2/$user
