I have written 2 scripts, clone-system and clone-cluster
which completely automate the cloning of a simple Tru64 single system,
or a cluster. By simple, I mean a straightforward configuration.
In particular, only simple disks ("/dev/disk/dskXX") can be used for
the target filesystems; LSM volumes cannot be targets. The scripts
should allow cloning from LSM volumes -- this has not been tested.
See below for an example cloning configuration.
The clone process produces a completely independently bootable system (or cluster). This has a number of advantages:
If you are interested in obtaining one or both of the scripts, send me a mail with your name, the name of your company (if appropriate), and a short description of what your company does. The scripts are free.
