Re: Clone of OS for Linux

There are several tools that can be found via a simple google search:

The best known is probable Clonezilla.

Re: Clone of OS for Linux

 

I can suggest (and probably the best out there) is the HP Sponsored tool called MondoRescue http://www.mondorescue.org/ - works like a charm for Cloning Systems as well as a very good OS Backup Solution or doign P2V or V2P.

 

If your servers are SAN connected -- then I would further suggest having your OS/System disk on a SAN LUN so your SAN Array's features can be leveraged... With a SAN-Boot Linux environment -- you can practically address a lot of concerns and issues relating to OS Fall-backability (specially during patching) and even quick backups (snapshots) and clones...

 

 

 

Glad to be Back to ITRC err HP Forums...!
