Second Linode cloned from the first
Thanks in advance.
Thanks for the insight.
$ dd if=/dev/ubda | ssh user@otherserver dd of=/path/to/disk.img
You'd probably want to throw some flags in there when you initiate ssh to turn down the encryption to "bluefish" or something a bit less CPU intensive or you'll find this process may take quite a while.
It's been a long time since I've done this, so there may be a better way, but this is the general idea.
In this case it might be easier to set up a temporary small Debian installation on the new Linode to handle the incoming disk image.
