cloning drive by dd to bigger distination
Posted on 2011-05-07
I have a project running and i will have to clone few server running on Vm and have to put those clone in each individual server.
i am using DD so i want to use this DD as it works .
i have used Same hard drive like
10 GB from Source to Distination.
works like charm .
but problem is : in real server the source harddrive is 64 GB , and the hardware server is 80GB
as you can see that Destination Harddrive is bigger then source
Now i dont understand if i do DD from source to destination
will it work ?? if it works what will happen to rest 18GB ?
I was teling this , from 8GB source with 40 GB destination.. the DD command is running from last 4 hr..
which put me in doubt
so , would you be able to tell that , will it work ??
Please tell me from your experiences ..
