Thank you for all your input. It works as i expected but it is good to
know that i did not miss anything and that even without copying the
sysid one might get this to work. Nice piece of Software.
I will use the method using the sysid copy, that feels right to me and
it worked nicely with a small test server.

Thanks a lot!
