Recloning a DRD CLone

Passing on any icky SCIFI references to cloning clones and diluting the gene pool......

 

I'm looking for a confidence level in doing the following:

 

Start (create the original clone)

 

Pri Boot Disk = /dev/disk/disk1

Alt boot Disk (Mirror) = /dev/disk/disk2

DRD Clone = /dev/disk/disk3

DRD Clone (Mirror) = /dev/disk/disk4

 

Create the original clone

/opt/drd/bin/drd clone -v -t /dev/disk/disk3 -x mirror_disk=/de/disk/disk4

 

Activate

/opt/drd/bin/drd activate -x reboot=true

 

Server reboots and:

- changes drd00 (dev/disk/disk3) to vg00

- changes drd00 mirror (/dev/disk/disk4) to vg00 mirror

- changes vg00 (dev/disk/disk1) to drd00

- changes vg00 mirror (/dev/disk/disk2) to drd00 mirror

 

Re-clone the clone

/opt/drd/bin/drd clone -v -t /dev/disk/disk1 -x mirror_disk=/dev/disk/disk2

 

Activate

/opt/drd/bin/drd activate -x reboot=true

 

Server reboots again:

- changes vg00 (old drd clone) to drd00

- changes vg00 mirror (old drd mirror) to drd00 mirror

- changes drd00 (new drd clone) to vg00

- changes drd00 mirror (new drd clone mirror) to vg00 mirror

 

Is this correct????

This looks correct. 

 

I am doing this on a test system right now and will let you know the results later today.

Yes, that will work just fine!

 

I have just testedthis and did not have any problems whatsoever.
