Clone hard drive

Our HP 9000 Workstation 700 Series (HP-UX 9.5) has been working flawlessly for years. But, I am concerned as we have no clone of the existing hard drive.

How does one clone the hard drive so that a replacement can be 'dropped in' should a failure occur?

Re: Clone hard drive

Hi Jeff,

There was a Ignite like tool for HPUX 9 called copyutil, otherwise I would suggest to create a duplicate disk with the dd command.
