I have a fully functional, well-configured OpenBSD machine that does
exactly what I want it to do. I want to create a mirror of this machine
that will reside elsewhere and be updated every few minutes via rsync.
I realize that there wil be differences of course with ip addresses,
names, and networking-related configuration, but I would like to
simplify all the effort that went into making the first machine function.
Does anyone have any suggestions to accomplishing the system duplication
tasks? Would a dd if=/dev/wd0 | nc 'destination.ip.address' type thing
work? I just don't know enough about low level utilities in OpenBSD.
I've configured the hardware to be as identical as possible - same
drives, same Ethernet adapters, same processor, same motherboard.
Ideas? The backup machine is to be an offsite "hot spare" to replace
the first in the event of catastrophic failure.
