Restore Lion Server from Time Machine backup
Authored by: giskard22 on Mar 21, '12 01:57:57PM

Cloning a booted system is a lousy way to make a backup. There is no way to guarantee that the data on disk is current. This is especially true of anything that uses a database -- you never know when changes are actually flushed to disk except when you shut down the service.
