Converting a backup into a master?

i wrote the topic "getting master-conf from backup-conf ", perhaps a little confused.
After testing around and always running in the same problems, tonight i had this idea:
How about converting my running backup-pfsense into the new master and setting up a new fresh backup-pfsense?
Has anyone do this before?
My running pfsense is 2.1, i would take a fresh 2.1.4 as new backup. Should this work?
Thanks for any idea and info.

If I attempted this.. I'd download the config from the backup and manually modify the XML file, then re-upload it. Off the top of my head, you need to update the following;
IP Address of all Interfaces - i.e., change from .3 to .2
Skew for all CARP VIPs - i.e, change skew from 100 to 0
Failover Peer IP for DHCP - i.e., change peer from .2 to .3
Once you get your second instance of pfSense up, you'll just need to configure pfSync and XMLRPC Sync.
