This really isn't a fed question per se, but one that I'm trying to resolve.
I'm running some test Digital Ocean (DO) droplets. I'm interested in
"downsizing" to a smaller size. DO doesn't provide an easy process to
I'm trying to figure out how to craft a process to "completely"
clone/copy a working droplet/vm to a smaller size, such that I have an
"exact" copy but simply running on a smaller size VM.
The test VM is a test NFS server, running centos7, using yum.
I've thought of setting up the new/.smaller VM with the same users.
1) do a massive rsync of the / on the initial VM to the target VM
2) do a yum update
but how do I ensure that all the services on the initial VM are
installed/running on the target??
how do I ensure that all the required config files (nfs/ssh/etc...)
are properly configured/operating..
Yeah.. I'm not a sys admin/eng!!
