comment Cloned server will only boot read-only
@user733500: Sorry, the comment about looking at ownerships came from you. I figured it would be better only changing the files that were actually owner by 11233 so I reversed my last operation by loading a snapshot and did this instead: find /mnt/rootfs -user 11233 -exec chown -h root:root {} \; Everything looks OK. I would like to accept your (@user733500) comment as the accepted answer, can you please post it as an answer? And still, I wonder: how could the ownership change?

@Danduk82: Ok, I made a chown -R root:root * and what a difference. Now it seems to boot normally. But is that OK do? Or should I only change those files that were actually owned by 11233? Another question, more out of interest? How could that owner change happen?

@Danduk82: Maybe there is something here. /sbin/init - and apparently most/all other files belonging to root is owner by 11233:11233 which is unknown:unknown. How to fix?

comment Cloned server will only boot read-only
I rsync'ed the files to / on the virtual disk, ran an grub-install, modified fstab. And remember, it does boot! I get a login prompt, but the system is severely crippled because a lot of stuff couldn't start due to the read-only filesystem. For example, even though I am root, I get the "Only root can do that" error when I try do root-stuff.
