If this is a fresh install, I gather selinux is enabled, so the above
approach is likely to have issues: many files/dirs under /var have
special selinux contexts.
I'd normaly use something like
rsync -aX /var/ /mnt/new_raid_array/
(the -X option preserves selinux contexts and note the trailing slashes)
Hope this helps.
