Download Compressed Linode Server Image


 / Published in: Bash
 

URL: http://library.linode.com/linode-platform/migration/copy-disk-image-over-ssh

After the system is in Finnix recovery mode set a password and start-up SSH. After that use this to compress the image on the sever side and download it locally saving bandwidth compared to a normal dd dump.

  1. ssh root@SERVER_IP "dd if=/dev/xvda bs=64k | gzip -c" | dd of=/home/user/linode.img.gz
