Thanks for motivation :)
I wanna use you images to crate a document in
portuguese and italian and maybe spanish
that is very usefull
Do U know If I can clone a server using baremetal??
here we use something like a cluster (MS Load balancing) there is 3 computer with the same MAC, and exactely the same hardware, that 3 servers create an unique IP and all of them respond that. I wanna clone one of these servers to put another one in productioin just changing some configurations.
I don know it there is a possibility.
a Yes or a No will help so I will stop trying.
great job again
you may boot in linux [rescue] mode or boot with linux-live CD, then dd hdd image to tape
then go to target (clone) machine, boot same way, now restore the dump image with dd.
You can also do the above two steps in one go. I usually do like this
# dd if=/dev/sda ibs=4M | ssh -l root <ip of the larget system> "dd of=/dev/sda obs=4M"
this is more than 30year old store!
but With a BAREMETAL restor U can restor a image to a diferent hardware.
By the way. I can't store a 200GB iso... My file system don't permit it at all.
I have created a new discution about restoring a baremetal backup to a Virtual Machinne. (Virtual box)
The dd method alows to restore on different hardware as well, in that case
for windows it will require you to reboot one or more times (new hardware found and reboot system, [after loading new drivers])!
for Linux users you have to go in for rescue mode make initrd for new hardware/SCSI Disk, install/fix boot loader and go with new hardware.
The dd+ssh method allows to create replica/close of any size. This is piped input-output.
The dd+gzip is greate and efficient with any other software product: you can create very small size BareMatel image. I usually do like this for my servers in SAN where disk size runs in hundreds of GB:
First you boot with LinuxLive CD or go in rescue mode, 2) mount the filesystem on some point in RW. create a file in the mounted filesystem like
# dd if=/dev/zero bs=4M od=dump.dd; rm -rf dump.dd
wait to finish this, since it will take lot of time to fill up the blank space your file system. This is writing a stream of zeros. This is tricky. When you will compress your filesystem (or Linux Device) the whole of the blank space will become ZERO SIZE! (here commercial product lack the performance) AND the rest of the file system will become to less than 1/3 of the occupied by files.
For example, a full Linux/windows system with OS/RDBMS (except data), with 36GB drive results a compressed image of 3GB size.
Try to find something about Phantom Linux, a Brazilian distro that can do that.
Zahid is there something like your tutorial for
backuing up Oracle databases?
template creation and stuf
thar should be very usefull
Hi Zahid thanks for your tutorial, do you know how much space the BMR Server image takes up? Just wondering if it can be broken down to 1Gb for example per server.
@ Claudio Veronezi :
Yes I have created now an article related to Oracle. See the following link which may help you I hope
Thanks all. Actually i was not getting any email for the update on this post thats why i am now giving reply to all.
i also have some other articles which you all guys may like. i am adding my article links for all of you. Hopefully i may be good. i tried my best for all you guys help.
