We have many feeds that are being published in iTunes-U for our organization.  We have a couple of Snow Leopard servers hosting these podcasts.  However, one of the servers has some data corruption and is no longer able to start and/or run the Podcast Producer service.  I would like to migrate the podcasts to the other server (which has plenty of resources) while I rebuild the failing server.


The feeds in iTunes-U have a different URL for each server that hosts them.  I would have to modify the feed URL, which is fine.  However, I need to move the podcasts that are published on one server (server1) via Podcast Producer to another server's (server2) Podcast Producer datastore.  I will have to physically move the data over to the server2 datastore and somehow get server2 to publish the podcasts.  I'm not familiar with the internal workings and configurations of Podcast Producer to know if it is possible to modify the Podcast Producer configurations to add the migraged podcasts to the published feeds on that server, nor do I know where/how to modify the configurations to accomplish this.


Is this even possible?  Does anyone know a way we can do this effectively?


It's too bad with all the plug and play capabilities in Apple products that there doesn't seem to be a simple export/import functionality or similar to accomplish this type of activity.

Podcast Producer, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
