Restoring RedHat Enterprise Server x64 5.4
at work place I have an HP ProLiant DL580 with RedHat Enterprise Server 5.4 x64. Today I cloned this machine using clonezilla.
What I would like to do is restore the image to VMWare machine for personal purpose (I cannot perform tests on production machine). But after restoring on VMWare I got "Kernel Panic". That's normal due to different hardware.
Now, is there a way to remove the Kernel Panic and correctly boot the machine? I ask our tech department for the RedHat CD1 to enter the "linux rescue" enviromnent, then try to re-read the hardware list with
# chroot /mnt/sysimage
Do you think this is the right way? Is there any other restore way?
Thanks for your time!
