"tar" is a program do archive files, not to copy devices.

"dd" is a program to copy files and devices.

Although that will only work in your case if /dev/sda2 and /dev/sdb1 are *exactly* the same size, since you will be doing the copy "below" the file system level.

It might be a good idea to try to learn some basics before trying to do more complicated stuff with Oracle.
