Nothing wrong with that means of cloning a server.  You mostly just have
to be careful not to bring it up on the network until you've adjusted the
configs such that it doesn't usurp the other server's identity.  We use
g4l for imaging and reimaging, but it's essentially the same process.  I
just cloned a couple of servers today for a sandbox.  Even going to
significantly different hardware, I just had to boot rescue and remake the
initrd to make them boot.
