Solaris 10 cloning

I have created a dump using ufsdump of size 7.7G for my Source machine which is running with Solaris 10, by which I am stuck with few questions.
I have a target machine which is running Solaris 10.
I even know the procedure how to mount the new file system and install boot the dump file.
but my basic doubt is where to put this dump file onto the target machine and what are next steps before mounting the file system and restoring the dump file?

One more question is if my target disk has less memory than that of source disk, is cloning possible? If yes what should be followed for the same?

The easiest thing is NOT to put the dump file on the target machine, esp. if you don't have a lot of free space.

If possible, create an NFS share on the volume your dump file is sitting on right now and mount this share on the target machine. Then proceed with the ufsrestore to the target disk/volume.

I'm assuming you already know how to do that but just in case:

http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E19253-01/817-5093/bkuprestoretasks-87945/index.html

(replacing the tape commands with appropriate path to the dump file on the NFS share)

If your target disk is not big enough, this will obviously not work. You could choose for a selective restore instead of a full restore but that requires more work.
