I did 'em all
Authored by: Shawn Parr on May 20, '05 11:46:05AM

I can't really vote as I did three different type of installations on different systems.

On my personal system I did a backup, erase & install, then used the Migration tool that is now part of the installer.

On the Xserve I administer I did an upgrade install so as to have as little downtime on my services as possible.

On the Client machines I administer at the labs with the Xserve I did a just plain erase & install and reconfigured from scratch.

Interestingly enough, except for a couple of poorly documented changes in Server, all the ways worked very well. Very little downtime on any machine.

The only one I didn't do was the Archive & Install, but seeing as how much stuff can get moved over if you use the migration tool the difference between the two is probably academic.
