How to clone solaris 10 machine
Posted on 2016-10-21
I am pretty novice to solaris and I need to clone solaris 10 machine to a shared network path, and then take the image to duplicate to another machine.
I tried using dd but got stuck at the start,
dd if=/dev/rdsk/device-name of=/dev/rdsk/device-name bs=block-size
Here, how to identify which is the source device-name.
Because under dev/rdsk I found number of entires as below,
c0t0d0p0 c0t0d0s15 c1t0d0p3 c1t0d0s4 c2t0d0s1 c2t0d0s7 c3t0d0s12
c0t0d0p1 c0t0d0s2 c1t0d0p4 c1t0d0s5 c2t0d0s10 c2t0d0s8 c3t0d0s13
c0t0d0p2 c0t0d0s3 c1t0d0s0 c1t0d0s6 c2t0d0s11 c2t0d0s9 c3t0d0s14
c0t0d0p3 c0t0d0s4 c1t0d0s1 c1t0d0s7 c2t0d0s12 c3t0d0p0 c3t0d0s15
c0t0d0p4 c0t0d0s5 c1t0d0s10 c1t0d0s8 c2t0d0s13 c3t0d0p1 c3t0d0s2
c0t0d0s0 c0t0d0s6 c1t0d0s11 c1t0d0s9 c2t0d0s14 c3t0d0p2 c3t0d0s3
c0t0d0s1 c0t0d0s7 c1t0d0s12 c2t0d0p0 c2t0d0s15 c3t0d0p3 c3t0d0s4
c0t0d0s10 c0t0d0s8 c1t0d0s13 c2t0d0p1 c2t0d0s2 c3t0d0p4 c3t0d0s5
c0t0d0s11 c0t0d0s9 c1t0d0s14 c2t0d0p2 c2t0d0s3 c3t0d0s0 c3t0d0s6
c0t0d0s12 c1t0d0p0 c1t0d0s15 c2t0d0p3 c2t0d0s4 c3t0d0s1 c3t0d0s7
c0t0d0s13 c1t0d0p1 c1t0d0s2 c2t0d0p4 c2t0d0s5 c3t0d0s10 c3t0d0s8
c0t0d0s14 c1t0d0p2 c1t0d0s3 c2t0d0s0 c2t0d0s6 c3t0d0s11 c3t0d0s9
Please help me how to use dd for cloning.
May be I m not sure whether dd suits for my requirement stated above.
Thanks in advance.
