Is it possible to clone a RHEL or windows 2008 virtual machine (VMware) from a production server to a test server?
I want to install oracle 11g server and create several databases on RHEL virtual machine and then clone it and copy to another virtual machine on another test server.
The other virtual machine will have crystal report server 2011.
I am not sure if the cloning will do a sector by sector copy and caryy over any registry or memory settings for the software installed.
Do we need special software for cloning?
