You used the CloneZilla Live CD?

CloneZilla Server and DRBL Server are entirely different and can be
difficult.  But CloneZilla _LiveCD_ is easy.

Tell us more about your RAID config.  It is not software raid is it?
Not sure if any cloning system can work to clone software raid unless
you have completely identical set of drives in both and then you would
not be doing disk level cloning, but file level cloning.
What kind of raid do you have?
