Hi Umbrel community,
I have been running my Umbrel node without issues on a VM running on a HDD and am looking now at upgrading to a new VM running on an SSD.
I would like to move my Umbrel node i.e. the nodes unique name and all its history & reputation (as viewable on 1ML) along with the full btc balance and also all the lightning channels and there balances (not closing them) onto the new hardware that I have.
I want to confirm if this is the correct way to go about this:
Is it simply just build the new VM on the SSD (I’ll make sure the old VM is shutdown) then enter the seed phrase as per the instructions here umbrel/README.md at master · getumbrel/umbrel · GitHub and as per the comments it will “restore the user’s settings and Lightning network channel data.”
If this is not the case, then how can I make sure I keep my lightning channels & keep the history and my unique node name as per 1ML?
Thanks again for all your time & help regarding this.
