Cloning embedded on other disk

#1

Post by Effecta.it »

Hi all,

I have installed an embedded Xigmanas 12.1.0.4 on a USB stick.
Now I wish to clone it on an SSD drive, I can connect it via USB or via SATA.
How I can clone it in a simple way, without using external tools?

Thanks for your help.

Luke

(suggestion: make an extension for clone/backup the system disk :) )

Why not just do a fresh embedded install on the SSD drive?

do a fresh install and restore previously saved config.

Thats all.


PD: If this time you use a SSD instead a USBKey, please consider to do a ZFSonRoot install, read about it.

I simply reinstall and load config.
The link is for myself to learn ZFSonRoot, thanks
