DRD - i created a clone disk now i want a clone of the clone disk

So i have a BL860c i4 that has service guard installed and on this system i have two vpars/packages running. I would like to DRD the vpar/package boot disk but if i run drd now it uses the boot image from the VSP which has service guard. below is drd status. I would like to clone disk110. 

root@vsp25-1:/> drd status

I think you can't.

AFAIR you can specify a target, but the source will be the running system.

If you clone to a SAN LUN, your array maybe can clone the LUN you used as a target.


Hope this helps!

So consider to use your SAN administration tools to create a snapshot (clone) of this LUN.


Hope this helps!
