    Hi folks,

    I haven't figured out how to make use of dd command to clone an existing guest as a new guest. Could you please shed me some light? Pointer would be appreciated. TIA

    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;
    # 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...
