Yes there are many critical problems you should be very concerned
about. The first being 4.7 is at it's end of life now. There are
many security updates between 4.7 and 4.10 the soon to be officially
announced newest stable version release.

If you have time constraint where you have to deploy now, then I
would install 4.10 RC from scratch and populate the other boxes from
that, or if not that than at least start with 4.9 as the base.

Hi guys,

Thanks for the help with the dump and restore question.

I am about to clone 2 more machines to the setup mentioned in 'Dump

It is based around FreeBSD 4.7. These systems will need to last 3
before they are decommisioned and replaced.

Are there any critical problems with 4.7 I should be concerned with?
