If I were looking into this (which I am not), I'd look into doing an "rsync"
to sync the recording directory, then doing a mysqldump and restore of the
tables related to recordings...essentially cloning the master system. I'd
not set them up to know about one another, rather try to clone the master in
a way that doesn't mess things up.
I reality it's a bit more complicated that that, but that may provide some
ideas for you to run with.
