I have to copy a lot of files (60000+) between two servers, which is approx 5TB of data.
I've tried mounting the backup server as a folder, and copying the files that way, but I couldn't get the permissions to write files right.
So I thought of bonding the remaining 3 nic ports, connect crosscables and using cp/scp to copy everything. Now I have no experience with bonding nic's en transfering data that way.
Would it be faster? Can anyone relate or give me some advice on better solutions? Would be much appreciated.
