Question ufsdump and restore

I just completed a level 0 ufsdump of the following files:-

ufsdump 0uf /dev/rmt/0n /
ufsdump 0uf /dev/rmt/0n /usr
ufsdump 0uf /dev/rmt/0n /export/home
ufsdump 0uf /dev/rmt/0n /oracle
ufsdump 0uf /dev/rmt/0n /sapr3

I need to restore ALL the files onto a different machine and continue using my oracle database. Can anyone assist me by giving me the steps I need to follow to complete this?

If you ufsrestore the root volume onto another machine, you'll be overwriting all the kernel parameters etc. Is the hardware identical? If not, consider skipping OS volumes in your restore.

With that out of the way, it's just a matter of running ufsrestores in the same order. Similar commandline, just man ufsrestore for the full details.

Starting oracle is a different story though, I'm no DBA :/
