    I’d like to know if anyone has a best method for cloning a Linux workstation.

    Initial install and setup on ‘Workstation A’ worked out great. But I have now come across another machine which I’d like to use as ‘Workstation B’ for testing purposes.

    Instead of installing everything from scratch, doing the iterative steps for calibration, and a few post-installation procedures, I’d like to just make a clone of the working machine. It may be quicker to just start fresh, but a clone would ensure that no steps were missed.

    Is this a good idea, and if so, do you have any recommendations on the safest/simplest way to do this, without screwing up the original install.

    Thanks guys,



    Speaking as someone who has worked in the IT profession the easiest way for you to clone a Linux box is to either use what is called the FOG Project or boot from a disk or flash drive using Clonezilla. For beginners use Clonezilla. I will let you do a simple google search to find out how to use it.
