I created a wallet and generated a seed (very cool that I got a checksum) - I added money to it. All good. I created a light wallet; Thinking of setting up a full node in azure; I have credits every month to give back to the community. After research; I realized I couldn't trust how I generated my seed; couldn't even remember where. Next steps I used my Mac and generated a new seed and moved 1 MI to it. The transaction has been pending for 3.5 hours. I re-attached it but not sure what rebroadcast means. How long does it take to confirm/ I don't want to move the rest until it does. Is it true I have to generate a new receive address each time I want to send IOTA to my new seed?

@IOTA22
Thanks for the post, and welcome to the community.

Transaction finality is dependent on a bunch of variables. Typically, it's smart to reattach/promote the pending transaction a few times per day until you finally get it confirmed. You might consider switching hosts each time you reattach/promote.

Rebroadcast vs reattach can be read about in the FAQ: https://helloiota.com/faq.html
