Can we clone production ERP boxes with the configuration and drives?
Please follow the following steps:
1 Install a hard drive cloning utility
2 Launch the hard drive cloning utility and use it to create a bootable CD to use for the cloning operation. Instructions will vary slightly for each particular software package.
3 Create a complete backup of all data on the RAID 5 array prior to beginning the process of cloning the drives, and then power down the system.
4 Connect the new drives according to the type of installation desired. Restart the computer with the bootable cloning CD in the optical drive.
