I've used something like
ssh root@<source_node> 'tar --one-file-system -C <source_mountpoint> -cf - .' | tar -C <target_mountpoint> -xf -

Source and target partition layouts may differ, just don't forget to update fstab accordingly and about boot partition for UEFI and re-run grub-install (maybe not needed for UEFI?).
