No, since you are (or should) dump the backup volumes, it does not
make sense to dump them a second time if they are not changed.

Use "vos backup" or "vos backupsys" to reclone. Have a look at "bos
status <servername> -long" to see wether you set up a bos cron job for it. 

See the IBM manual for how to set up a nightly job for recloning, by
the use of the bos daemon.
