Hey guys,

Is there a way to backup my current plex server, keep it running, and then redeploy the backed up data (like the thumbnails and metadata) on a new plex server without messing with my old server? I remember trying this in the past and it would always interrupt my old plex server since the unique claimed plex id is also backed up. Maybe there's a way to switch out the old claimed id with a new one? Thanks in advance!
