I two am running into the issue of creating a copies of guests. Not
anywhere near your scale but I want it faster than a build each time.
I still haven't sorted out all the processes. Though I looked at
vserver-copy I think I found two different scripts that went about it in
totally different ways.
What I have tried, but had problems with, is to:
* build $FIRSTGUEST and get it all up-to-date and in place.
* build $NEWGUEST one using the skeleton method.
* remove all the files from the /vserver/$NEWGUEST
* copy all the files from $FIRSTGUEST into $NEWGUEST.
Issues I haven't confirmed/resolved are:
* if I need to copy all the files/information from
/vservers/.pkg/$FIRSTGUEST into /vservers/.pkg/$NEWGUEST. Just an
issue of getting some time.
* How to create the mark file and hash ( vhasify ) directory.
I believe the skeleton method does the rest of the creation/building
What would be really great is a clone method that allowed you to specify
which guest to use as the donor.
