Trying to use Messaging 8.0.2 version on an Installation scenario like below:

Migrating config.xml between systems which perform the same role

Suppose we have an mta/imta fully configured. We use load balancers so we end up with multiple mta instances, but save for hostname and msg-admin- ldap user differences, they are exactly the same.

It seems to me we could perform the following procedure:

1) install and configure mta-instance-1
2) customize configuration for mta-instance-1 appropriate for our site
3) install and configure mta-instance-2
4) save backup of config.xml on mta-instance-2
5) copy config.xml from mta-instance-1 to mta-instance-2
6) edit config.xml (set xconfig serial="1", set hostname appropriately)
7) use msconfig on mta-instance-2 to update instance.base.ugldapbinddn and instance.base.ugldapbindcred based on the original/backedup configuration/config.xml of mta-instance-2

Would this work? Is there a better way?
