Hi,

I'm thinking of upgrading my 2.0.5 system to 2.1, but don't want to 
have it off line for very long. I have a second disk the same as the 
one 2.0.5 is on, so perhaps I can just copy the whole disk to it?

If I put the disk into the 2.0.5 system and make sure it's configured 
for wd1 can I then type something like "cp /dev/rwd0 /dev/rwd1" to 
duplicate the disk?

I could then upgrade one disk offline, then install it in the working 
host to test, and have a good backup.

Will this work?

TIA
peter
