    Hi all,

    Just after some advise. In my server I have 2 HDD's I've created the same partition structure on HDD2 as HDD1.
    HDD1 mounted as sda
    HDD2 mounted as sdb

    The partitions are rsync'ed nightly. If HDD1 ever has any issues, would I be able to simply mount HDD2 as sda and bring up the server without any issues? Can anyone see any reasons why this may not work?

    Cheers

    Hello :)

    Yes, assuming it's an exact replication of the data (including permissions and ownership values), I don't see any reason why it would fail to boot as intended.

    Thank you.
