The configurations files in /etc/pulp obviously need to be saved and
restored, but I'm not sure what needs to be copied to preserve:
- the MongoDB data store
- the actual repo contents


I've personally never done it and I'm not sure that list exists.

Tepo contents (and all the stuff you'll need for plugins and the like)
are all under /var/lib/pulp. That part is easy.

Mongo I _think_ is as simple as /var/lib/mongodb. You'll see in there
pulp_database.{0,1,ns} which I'd guess is the entire database contents,
but I don't know that for a fact.

OK, I'll try copying those 3 (/etc/pulp, /var/lib/pulp, /var/lib/mongodb), along with the Apache and iptables config, into a fresh VM and see if it comes up correctly.

Successful or not, I'll report the results back here.
