   I have one Sun v240 and 4 disks installed on it,as we know,this module machine has only 4 slot to insert 4 hard disks.Now all of the 4 disks are being used by solaris9 OS and Oracle database.

    I knew it is not so difficult to clone one disk to another disk on the same machine using dd command,but all of the 4 disks are being used and we cannot pull off anyone.

    So We wanted to clone these 4 disks to another sun v240 also with 4 same disks through the network,is it possible or anyone has some other good ideas?

     thanks in advance and if you need,I can put other infomation about the source host,pls let me know
