The debiandox tutorial works also for Hetzner, I've tested that.
I guess it will also do for Strato.

howto? Or do you suggest another way? I want to have a clone, then send an email to the site owners I host, to change their IP in the DNS where they manage their sites, so we can just hop onto the new server.
please keep in mind, that I want to synchronize a server running on interl to the enw one running on AMD and having setup software raid on the new one also I would like not to have to configure all applications like postfix, apache2 ispconfig again, except for the samll changes in hsotnames and IP - any chance to do that?
I guess SystemImager will not work because your device names are now /dev/md0, /dev/md1, etc. on your new server and probably /dev/hda1 or /dev/sda1 or similar on the old one. I recommend to move the data manually. It's a lot of work, but afterwards you can be sure everything works the way you want it.
