Subject: Re: cloning hdb4 to another machine
current# mkdir /mnt/clone
current# mount target:/mnt/hdb3 /mnt/clone
# let's assume /dev/hdb3 is mounted as /home
if /dev/hdb3 is mounted "/", than copy only the important stuff
- use /bin /boot /dev /etc /home /lib /opt /root /sbin /usr /var
instead of "*" in the tar command
Boy, I must have been unclear!
I have 2 different machines. I want hdb4 on one machine
cloned to hdb3 on the other machine. The machines are
about 20 miles apart (home and work).
The suggestions will come in very handy when I need to
clone on the same drive.
Any help on cloning from one machine's 2nd drive to
a different machine's 2nd drive?
