RE: [Vserver] Duplicate or copy a vserver

vserver B build -m skeleton <insert ip and hostname settings>
cp -ru /var/lib/vservers/A /var/lib/vservers/B

That should work since the necessary files in B should have a newer
timestamp and should not be updated by the cp.

Subject: [Vserver] Duplicate or copy a vserver

Dear all, I have a vserver on my Debian box called A and now I want to
get a similar new one called B with a new IP and hostname. The new
vserver will be on the same box, and both vservers A and B must run at
the same time (simultaneously).

Vserser A is on /var/lib/vserevers/A and I want vserver B be on

How can I do this in the easiest way ???

Thanks and greetings,
