I have 2 Debian boxes which I need to upgrade. In the past, before upgrading any box, I have used Clonezilla to create an image of each of the box's harddrives for use as disaster backup, in case Something Goes Wrong with the upgrade. (Note I regularly create file-backups (with
rsync) of my
/home filesystem and config files: I only create image-backups before major events, like upgrades or reinstalls.) However, I recently noted this response to a Clonezilla forum post (from one of the Clonezilla leads:
RAID device is complicated to Clonezilla live, besides LUKS is not supported by Clonezilla, either. Therefore your configuration is too difficult for Clonezilla
The harddrives on the boxes I want to image do not run RAID, but they do run both LUKS+LVM2 (installed as described here). So I'd like to know, how are folks with similar setups cloning their drives?
