I did this tons of times before without problem
Actually I did:
mount VolGrpSys2-root /mnt/linux1 - o ro
mount VolGrpSys3-root /mnt/linux2
cp -a /mnt/linux1/* /mnt/linux2
In the past it did not miss directories. Would it do it know?
I do not like to use dd, because I want to keep the size of the 2 patitions are different
I could use tar -c tar -x
 You used cp /dev/sda /dev/sdb? Device to device? Or you specified directories to copy? I've had cp -a of directories not work, in particular it misses hidden files unless you explicitly copy them. I've had better luck with rsync. And I've had impressively good luck with btrfs send/receive, that's a cake walk, and fast.
