Thank you Vincent, Pasi and Ian for your answears and hoping that can
you help me a little more with your advice :-)

Let me explain more precisely my problem.
We just installed a new cluster (32 servers with Nehalem CPU and 24 GB).
To automate the deployment of XCP on multiple machines, we want to
create an image of the installed software of XCP.
P.S. we use Bright Computing as a cluster manager

Now we installed XCP in a physical machine and want to grab all the
softwares (the hypervisor and the dom0) on an image that can be deployed
automatically on the whole cluster using Bright Computing Cluster Manager.

Any idea or advice ?

cloning XCP installation is not different than cloning a normal linux installation. everything is available as a hard disk through /dev/(s|h)da or directly as a linux path /, but the you need to customize everything after you cloned it to the other machine.

Just thinking on XCP specific things, you probably need to delete the cloned database, and have the first scripts rerun on the cloned machine (have a look at /etc/firstboot.d). But this is not trivial, and you have to ready to commit some time and effort to do that.
