I have to dump all my GPT partitions from one drive to another. The MBR equivalent would be sfdisk -d.

Take a look at GPT fdisk:

[I] sys-apps/gptfdisk
     Available versions:  0.6.13 (~)0.7.2 (~)0.8.0
     Installed versions:  0.8.0(10:58:25 PM 10/12/2011)
     Homepage:            http://www.rodsbooks.com/gdisk/
     Description:         gdisk - GPT partition table manipulator for Linux

Assuming that you want to dump partition table from sda to sdb, try this:

sgdisk -R=/dev/sdb /dev/sda

Pay attention to the order, don't revert.

  • I just wanted to add, that -R is the shorthand version of --replicate and specifies the target device. Oct 21, 2013 at 9:57
