Abstract                : (Assuming both versions are the same.
                          I don't know if 3.31->5.01 would work).
                          
                          (Moving from server1 (HP-UX B.10.20) to cooloola (SunOS 5.5) )
                          
                          (The actual procedure I used copied /var/opt/OV/share and then I 
                          created a merged /var/opt/OV/share.{cooloola,server1} from server1's
                          databses subdirectory and rest from cooloola. Below is what I should
                          have done the first time!)
                          
                          
                          server1# ovstop
                          cooloola# ovstop
                          server1# find /var/opt/OV/share/databases -print | cpio -ovcdm > 
                          				/scratch1/tmp/380/server1.cpio
                          cooloola# cd /var/opt/OV/share
                          cooloola# mv databases databases.cooloola
                          cooloola# cpio -ivcdum < /scratch1/tmp/380/server1.cpio
                          cooloola# vi /var/opt/OV/share/databases/ovwdb/ovserver
                          	change "server1" to "cooloola"
                          
                          	cross fingers, shake bones, close eyes, pray, etc
                          
                          cooloola# ovstart
                          
                          and for good measure :-
                          
                          server1# ovstart
                          
                          In the future when everything is determined to be running correctly
                          
                          cooloola# rm -rf /var/opt/OV/share/databases.cooloola
                          cooloola# rm -f /scratch1/tmp/380/server1.cpio
