    My question is would it be possible to copy over a primary HDD running CentOS to another blank HDD in the system, while running live on the first?

    Our datacenter cant clone hard drives, and the one we currently are running on is getting SMART warnings. We have a backup hard drive for cPanel backups, but we would rather do a disk to disk copy, if possible.

    If we shutdown cPanel and related services (MySQL, httpd, etc), would it be possible to do this live copy?
