Perhaps you should add that it'd be a good idea to use xfs_admin
(xfs_db) to change the uuid for the copied filesystems (unless there is
a specific need for each filesystem to be an exact copy).
Most of the time you would be cloning a XFS filesystem to quickly setup
another box. If this is the case it would not matter would it?
Only if you would clone a fs from one partition to another on the same box
you would hit this.
I will add something like this to the faq.
I have a high Deja-Vu feeling while reading up on my morning email.
Every program has two purposes one for which
it was written and another for which it wasn't
I use the last kind.
