You need to use -r to recursively copy.

I tried using scp to copy the following directories over to the new server.

But I keep getting 'not a regular file' errors on the rrd and histlogs files.  I need the rrd data.  The graphs are really all I care about.

Thank you.

I've built a second Xymon server that I plan to use as my primary, but I
need to pull all the historical data from the old one.  What's a quick
way to do that?  Can I just add the new server's IP into a config file
and have the old one just pump all the data over?

Just copy the data directory.
If the rrd's are not compatibel (32 bit -> 64 bit) you can export the rrd to
xml on the old server, transfer the xml file and import the xml to an rrd.  I
juist did that for one of our customers :)
