Upgrading to a new Linux Distribution

    Good Evening,

    I have a question about upgrading a server. I currently have a server that is a few years old. It is loaded with Redhat 9 and Plesk 7.5.4. I understand that Plesk will be retiring Redhat 9 support very soon. I have purchased a second server and want to install Redhat Enterprise 4. Are there any proper steps to take besides following the guide. I am under the assumption to build a new Plesk 7.5.4 server on the RH Enterprise box and use the backup and restore tools?

    What about IP addresses? How do I use the same IP addresses from the old server? I want to make this as seamless as possible with the least possible downtime.

    I know two servers can't share IP addresses, but maybe I can switch them temporarily so they don't conflict.

    Anyone does this before?

    I appreciate the help.
