Wouldn't it be easier to just copy the existing VM and then make adjustments?

Hi falko,


VM - VServer


I'm considering whether it is possible running following commands to create a new guest;
Code:
# mkdir /etc/vservers/vserver2
# cp -R -p /etc/vservers/vserver1 /etc/vservers/verserver2
Whether there is a better way to do the job? The vesion of utis-vserver on this VM does not support "clone" command.

Any advice? TIA

I'm sorry, but I haven't worked with Linux Vserver yet...
