Re: How do I clone my boot disk

for 5.x systems there is a howto within "best practice" section of www.tru64unix.compaq.com/documentation.

Cloning is only supported if using same disk on same machine not to clone the disk for other systems (if hardware differences exists).

This question was made before please have a look to the search function of the forum giving you the old pointers...
