Okay, that makes sense.  I see this from you:


Should that work okay with a 3.5 database?  I'm familiar with SQL, so if
it needs some tweaks, I can handle that (just looking really to see if
that's the right general idea).

If so, could I connect the new iSCSI storage to a host, shutdown the
engine, "dd" the engine over, start up the new location in single-user
mode, and make the DB change?

Basically, just wondering if I could skip the full install and jump
right to an installed system.

Thanks for your help.
