I'd like to clone new servers (with only one RAID1) by simply pulling out one drive from the existing/working server and sliding it into a new server.
This should work all right, in principle.

QUESTION:  How to take care of the UNIQUE SYTEM ID etc. ?

Do I need to run any utility to generate a new/unique system ID ?

Yes this will work if using hardware RAID 1 for sure.  

Depending on the hardware may have to play around in bios (Dell), F8(?) for HP.

Download "newSID" to generate unique id for each "new" system..
