I am wondering if the following is possible and exactly how I should go about it:
- I have machine 'A' (dual core i5 2.3 GHz) with Ubuntu 12.04LTS installed and configured just the way I like it.
- I use a network drive to backup machine 'A' (using the ubuntu backup tool).
- I also have a machine 'B' (quad core i5 3.2 GHz).
- I am thinking of doing a fresh install of Ubuntu 12.04LTS on machine 'B', and then using the backup utility on machine 'B' to restore the backups of machine 'A' on to 'B', thereby cloning machine 'A' on machine 'B'.
Is such a thing doable? Is there a cleaner and/or safer way for me to clone 'A' on 'B'?
Thanks in advance
