Thanks. The biggest problem (so far) was probably that I forgot the --delete on the final rsync of the /www tree to the new box and didn't realize it until everything was already running again. So now I have a mess to clean up by hand... but it shouldn't be too bad. And I've still got some stuff to finish setting up, but it wasn't anything critical so I didn't need to finish it while still in the datacenter. Oh, and one of the drives got a timeout and got kicked out of the raid array shortly after I got there, so the box was rebuilding the array the whole time I was working on it, making it slower and take longer. I think/hope the drive cable just came a little loose during the trip; everything has been fine since I reseated it.
