    Backup ENTIRE server for distribution


    Hi.

    I have a production server running locally that I wish to distribute. Is there a way of backing up the entire server (with all applications/settings included) to an image for redistribution? Could anyone perhaps point me in the right direction? I was looking at SystemImager, but this seems to be more usefull in a network system whereas I would rather like to be able to log-in to a machine via SSH, and install the image.

    Thanks for any help,

    Regards,

    Robert Hofmeyr

    use dd to create the iamge of the vhole system or tar with gzip
    if you ant save the image to a remote machine mix the tar or dd with ssh
