Download disk image over SSH
I am looking for the most straightfoward way to download an img of the whole system. Any advice?
You can run a DD command from within the receiving machine, using the IP address of your server and connecting to the now SSH-able Linode to receive the content.
I realize this is an old discussion, but hoping someone is still watching this thread. Is the single user mode / rescue mode necessary or can you download your image off of a live system?
