hi
I would like to make system images for my servers.
I used clonzilla for my Ms-system and saved the img file on network.
I tried to do the same for my Bsd's and the clonning faild on the Swap file.

Where can I find a guide for solving this problem?
Is there a tool for making Disk to Disk cloning ?

My system is zroot on zfs, what is the best solution for disaster recovery?

Thanks

Just use a plain -RELEASE version, bsdinstall(8) can be scripted, and make use of sysutils/firstboot-freebsd-update and sysutils/firstboot-pkgs.

ZFS send/receive. But I would recommend dividing your OS plus applications and the actual data. The OS plus applications can be quickly reinstalled (typically faster than trying to do a "full" restore), your data is important, everything else isn't.
